Free Things to Do in Traverse City

Free. It’s the four-letter word we like to hear, especially when it is used within the context of vacation planning. We know that traveling can take a toll on your bank account, but here in northern Michigan, that’s not always the case. Yes, wine tasting will cost a few dollars and so will going to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, but there are plenty of other options for free things to do. You can relax on a beach in Frankfort, explore a trail near Bellaire, or bike through downtown Traverse City on the TART Trail. Need more suggestions?
