Spring is a beautiful time to visit Traverse City -- and one way to enjoy it at its best is to get out and take a leisurely tour of the countryside for a bit. Whether you decide to drive a car, pedal a bicycle or ride a motorcycle, you're sure to discover one of America's most beautiful landscapes: winding country roads through flowering orchards, rolling green hills cradled by lovely blue lakes, and charming little villages.
Choose your own theme -- do a shopping tour, perhaps, or a food/beer/wine tour. Explore the area's historic lighthouses, check out a few galleries and artists' studios, or just head out on the road in search of adventure. If you'd prefer to let someone else do the driving, there are many tour operators eager to help you arrange a limo tour of local wineries, a cycling excursion to the Sleeping Bear Dunes or a sailing cruise on Grand Traverse Bay.
