Traverse City is a place where the people, the seasons and the land all come together for a sum that’s so much more than the whole of its parts. For generations, veteran visitors have made the area their annual summer, fall, winter or spring vacation destination.
The region’s characteristic landscape of rolling ridges, lush forests and wide expanses of open water are the perfect backdrop for year-round outdoor recreation experiences. The culinary and libation scenes are always on point with wine, brewery and distillery tours taking center stage during the colder seasons. Special events and live concerts fill the calendar twelve months of the year, so there’s never truly a sleepy season here in northern Michigan. Now and then the colors change, but your experiences will always lead you to a pretty great place.
