Spring is a beautiful time to visit Traverse City -- and one way to enjoy it at its best is to get out and take a leisurely tour of the countryside for a bit. Whether you decide to drive a car, pedal a bicycle or ride a motorcycle, you're sure to discover one of America's most beautiful landscapes.
Head out to either of the Traverse City region’s two wine trails, located on the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas. Both peninsulas boast acre-upon-rolling acre of cherry trees that put on an amazing show of spring blossoms.
Explore the area's historic lighthouses, check out a few art galleries, or just head out on the road in search of adventure. If you'd prefer to let someone else do the driving, there are many tour operators eager to help you arrange a tour of local wineries, a cycling excursion to the Sleeping Bear Dunes or a sailing cruise on Grand Traverse Bay.
