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.

Take a day trip to historic Mackinac Island, named one of the best islands in the world by the 2018 Conde Nast Traveler’s “Reader’s Choice Awards.” Earlier this year the island was voted the #1 hottest U.S. destination for summer travel by TripAdvisor.

Outdoor recreation enthusiasts can choose from both summer and winter sports galore. And when you need a break from the great outdoors, you can take in a film at the restored State Theatre, tour a lighthouse, visit one of our many art galleries or take in a museum. Stroll through our vibrant downtown shopping district or venture into the shops, galleries and restaurants at the historic Grand Traverse Commons. We have some excellent golfing too. Thanks to 3 different designers on three different courses, the Grand Traverse Resort boasts a colorful palette of courses; each offering varying levels of challenge. The Bear, The Wolverine and Spruce Run are some of the most sought after courses in northern Michigan for the extraordinary experience they offer is golfers.

Dining, Wine & Beer

Thanks to our award-winning wines and talented local chefs, Traverse City enjoys an international reputation as a place of surprisingly sophisticated food and drink.

Midwest Living has listed Traverse City among its Five Top Food Towns, and Bon Appetit has listed it as one of America’s Top Five Foodie towns. Our eclectic cuisine borrows freely from other regional styles and relies heavily on imagination, boldness and spunk. Capitalizing on fresh ingredients from nearby farms, forests, lakes, streams and orchards our restaurateurs seem to be on a mission to showcase the best of what the area has to offer.

And what could go better with all this culinary bounty than a fine wine? The beautiful Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas are dotted with vineyards and award-winning wineries that have established a firm reputation for crisp, intensely flavorful wines. People in northern Michigan know wine from Leelanau County is great, now it's being recognized nationwide. The Leelanau Wine Trail was named third best wine region in the country according to 10Best Readers' Choice travel award contest by USA Today. The wine trail was also named Best Overall Wine Region in Michigan by Michigan by the Bottle Readers’ Choice Awards.

Draft Magazine named Traverse City one of “America’s Emerging Beer Towns” and the Travel Channel listed it among the “Top Seven Beer Destinations in North America,” the town’s beer scene has yet to slow down.
