What to do?
Traverse City was named Midwest Living’s “Greatest Midwest Town!” Traverse City has earned its reputation as a four-season destination thanks to its almost endless offerings of activities. And while our town has been voted one of the most charming places in the country, it’s anything but sleepy! You’ll find live music for every taste including jazz, classical, indy and rock at our local restaurants and watering holes. Or visit one of the area’s two casinos for some vegas-style gambling.
Kids and families will find plenty of fun distractions playing mini-golf or climbing the now world-famous Sleeping Bear Dunes. Travel back to the 1950s for some good, old-fashioned fun at the local drive-in theatre, or spend a rainy day playing laser tag, billiards or bowling indoors.
Traverse City has a rich maritime history as evidenced by our beautiful lighthouses and maritime museums. And the lovely Tall Ships that glide along West Grand Traverse Bay are a long-time favorite sight for locals and visitors alike.
