Who’s ready for sun and excitement? We sure are, but if you’re not then you may want to stay home because the National Cherry Festival is almost back! With it comes the annual cacophony of parades, rides, picnics, concerts, and some weird type of fruit that everyone seems to be going on about.

What happens when two world travelers from California visit Michigan, and more specifically, Traverse City for the first time?
If you’re a Sleeping Bear Dunes veteran, chances are you’ve run up and down the Dune Climb or biked along the Heritage Trail. You’ve probably hiked to the top of the Empire Bluffs or visited the Good Harbor Bay Beach, looking to find that famous beauty and stunning serenity that the National Lakeshore holds for anyone who needs it. However, it may be just a bit harder to find that serenity when you’re surrounded by people sprinting down a giant sand dune, flailing their arms and yelling like maniacs. But hey – we’ve all been there. We know how much fun it is!
It's sunny! It's hot! It's time to go to the beach! Dip your toes in the water, or go full force and take the plunge, whether your an adult or a kid. Speaking of kids...while all beaches are family-friendly, there are a few that seem as though they were made solely for entertaining the kids and relaxing their parents. For a family beach day, which I highly recommend you indulge in, here are the top choices for beaches in Traverse City.
As the weather starts to heat up, so do the trails. The paved Leelanau Trail spans a full 19 miles, flowing through orchards, wooded wildlife sanctuaries, wineries and open meadows – offering miles and miles worth of biking paradise. Every mile has something new to offer for both experienced cyclists and beginners alike. Ready to explore?
It’s easy to get overwhelmed on vacation, and even easier to spend more money than you have. Luckily, Traverse City has plenty of options for families on a budget – and we’ve found the most fun, easy, and beautiful ways for you to enjoy one of the best cities America has to offer.
Nothing says “vacation” like a colorful sunset over a sparkling body of water, and you simply can’t beat Lake Michigan for watching the sun slip over the horizon.
