Published once per year, Barefoot Magazine is the official lifestyle magazine of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

With so many activities, and features to offer, we wanted to put together an entertaining and informative guide to our beautiful 900-acre property and the greater Traverse City region. Published once per year, Barefoot Magazine is the official lifestyle magazine of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. The simple word “barefoot” is a direct reflection of a positive mood and attitude that overtakes each and every one of us while we travel on vacation. It’s the feeling that comes with a romantic walk on the beach. It’s the sense of relaxation that comes during a massage in our spa. It’s the sense of comfort that comes when you enter your room and kick off your shoes.

We invite you to discover for yourself why such high-profile publications as National Geographic, Outside Magazine, Money Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler and others have all labeled Traverse City, Michigan as a special place to visit and call home.
