Author: Traverse City Tourism

For years now, Traverse City has gained exposure as a top foodie town from well-known publications like Bon AppetiteLiveability.com, and theDailyMeal.com. And everyone knows that a foodie town isn't complete unless there's a booming wine and beer scene. Our hub is an eclectic mix of restaurants, wineries, breweries and festivals (We even have one in the spring dedicated to asparagus!).

The penchant for alcohol, in all its forms, continues to evolve in Traverse City. First, there were the wineries. Boutique, often family run endeavors that began in the 70s, they gained a reputation for their signature Chardonnays and Rieslings. Then came the breweries, riding the wave of the craft movement that started in the 80s on the West Coast. Today, “hop heads” can enjoy everything from a chocolatey Stout to a golden Saison in over 15 (and counting) breweries.

A tale of two peninsulas begins on...M-22 or M-37? Mile for mile, these scenic Michigan highways run the lengths of the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas. M-22 follows West Grand Traverse Bay and into Leelanau County, while M-37 goes north into the village of Old Mission. Both are easy drives from downtown Traverse City and can be explored in one day – or a few if you want to really take it all in.
