Outdoors in Summer

 In the summertime, opportunities for outdoor recreation here are at their peak. Whether you're a hiker or a cyclist, a paddler or an angler -- whether your idea of a good time is playing a round of golf or walking for miles down a beach -- there's always something to do here in Michigan's True North.

And here's an extra benefit: you'll actually have more time to play during a Traverse City summer than almost anywhere else. Because we're so far to the north, and at the very westernmost edge of the Eastern Time Zone, midsummer days last really long here. Toward the end of June and the start of July, you'll be able to enjoy yourself outdoors with plenty of daylight until well after 9 p.m.
