For the full "Traverse City experience," there's no substitute for getting out and touring the countryside for a bit. Take a car, a motorcycle, a bicycle, a boat or even a hot-air balloon -- no matter what form of transportation you choose, you'll be sure to broaden your horizons and discover some of America's most beautiful landscapes: breathtaking vistas, winding country roads, and rolling hills cradled by lovely blue lakes.
Choose your own theme -- a shopping tour, a food/beer/wine tour, a lighthouse tour or an art gallery tour. Or simply head out on the road (or bike trail) in search of adventure! And if you'd prefer to let someone else do the driving or guiding, there are many tour operators eager to help -- whether it's a limo tour of local wineries, a cycling tour on the Leelanau Trail or a sailing cruise on Grand Traverse Bay.
