So what if the water's still a little too cool for swimming? It's spring! After a long winter of waiting, who isn't ready to head for the beach? The Traverse City area has miles and miles of beautiful beaches where you can sunbathe, play a little volleyball and wander wherever you like.
And here's an added bonus -- spring is when you're most likely to find treasures washed up on the shore from the previous winter: whether it's sand-frosted beach glass or mysterious Petoskey stones, a spring ramble down the shoreline gives you first pick of the season's new keepsakes.
