Traverse City

“Traverse City is a resort center for every vacationer, no matter his age, his recreational desires, or the size of his purse… from the charm of the wild to the most modern comforts of city life.”

- Circa 1940, “Vintage Views along the West Michigan Pike”

It’s the journey that excites us. But it’s the destination that calls us.


Since the nation’s first motorists began journeying to Michigan in open-sided automobiles, not much - and so much - has changed in “The Heart of Nature’s Playground.” Blue-ribbon streams, protected bays and sparkling Great Lake shores still hold the same allure. The forests still invite four-season walks and the orchards just-picked sweetness. And just a short drive west, the “Most Beautiful Place in America” - Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore - stretches for 35 glorious miles.


Today, an ever-growing parade of festivals, a pulsing arts scene, championship golf, athletic excursions and enticing culinary events also draw visitors to the Cherry Capital, time and time again.
