Traverse City Area, Michigan Professional Review and Guide

"Along with being the “Cherry Capital of the World,” the Traverse City, Michigan, area is known as a “Great Lakes Paradise.” This city of 17,000—the largest in Northwest Lower Michigan—is blessed by a superb location at the head of Grand Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan’s northern shore. Grand Traverse County has a population of 70,000. (The bay is separated into east and west sections by the scenic Old Mission Peninsula.) Situated on the 45th parallel, halfway between the equator and the North Pole, the area has four distinct seasons.

Summers offer miles of beaches, fabulous freshwater fishing, and countless recreational possibilities. Winter’s bountiful snows bring cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, and skating. Add fall’s spectacular foliage and abundant fruit harvests and spring’s white and pink cherry blossoms, and you’ll see why families come back season after season, year after year. This eTrail is one complete vacation written with families in mind. It’s loaded with exciting things to do, family-friendly places to lodge and dine, recommended side trips, local sources of information, and detailed travel directions."
