Traverse City

The paradise of Michigan’s lower peninsula is more than a Lake Michigan beach, more than a paddle board, a scenic trail, or rolling wine country.  More than one of the nation’s top golf destinations, or even some of the best food and craft beer in the Midwest. It’s having all of it at your fingertips.  You won’t believe it if you haven’t seen it.

We invite you to Get Up and Go...

Hike the Sleeping Bear Dunes and swim at Esch Road Beach.

Perfect your groundstroke at the Resort’s tennis facility.

Relax and rejuvenate at Spa Grand Traverse.

Wine Tasting at Bower’s Harbor Vineyards.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding at the Resort’s private beach club.

Golf the Jack Nicklaus signature course - The Bear.

Drink craft beer at Short’s Brew Pub.

Dine atop the Resort’s Tower on the 16th-floor Aerie Restaurant & Lounge.

Hit on 16 at Turtle Creek Casino.


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

“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”

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 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.
