The Traverse City area's location on the 45th Parallel (midway between the North Pole and the equator) provides it with four distinct seasons, making it a year-round destination. Spring erupts in millions of cherry and apple blossoms, and the forests are filled with delicate white trillium and the elusive morel mushroom. Once April rolls around, it’s a great time to break out the bikes and kayaks. Chilly mornings often give way to warm afternoons, so dress in layers!
