Learn more about our Beach Club and surrounding summer fun in the below Barefoot TV segment.

Sleeping Bear Dunes,  Cherry Republic,  Wineries,  Golf Lesson

In this pilot episode, Jordan takes us to the breathtaking Sleeping Bear Dunes in Glen Arbor, Michigan. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was recently named the "Most Beautiful Place in America" on ABC's Good Morning America. Jordan then takes us on a quick wine tour, visiting Cherry Republic, Shady Lane Cellars and Black Star Farms, all of which can be found within the colorful Leelanau County. The episode concludes with Jordan heading back to Grand Traverse Resort and Spa for a refresher golf lesson with PGA professional and Head Golf Pro, Scott Hebert.

Beach Club,  Paddleboarding  & Nearby Turtle Creek Casino

Join Jordan as she heads down to the Resort's Private Beach Club on East Grand Traverse Bay for a stand-up paddle board lesson (SUP) compliments of Blue Sky Rentals. Later, Jordan heads over to try her luck at nearby Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel.


Join Jordan Carson in episode three as she makes her way to downtown Traverse City to explore the Sarah Hardy Farmers Market. The market offers produce from local farmers, as well as a large variety of local baked goods, produce, honey, flowers and more. Next, Jordan heads to Spa Grand Traverse to unwind with a Grand Stone Massage before taking the glass elevator in the Resort's signature tower 16 stories high, to Aerie Restaurant and Lounge, for an unforgettable dining experience.
