Many vacation destinations boast a “something for everyone menu of activities”, but there’s no doubt Traverse City delivers on the promise. From boat cruises on tall ships and catamarans to superb golf courses, casino gaming and winery tours, Traverse City is one of America’s great vacation areas.
You can enhance your visit by staying in an amenity-laden, value-oriented vacation rental instead of a cramped, uninspiring hotel room. Vacation rentals offer money-saving, fully equipped kitchens, dining areas and amenities such as Jacuzzis, hot tubs, and swimming pools. You can select from a wide range of properties including ultra modern condos, expansive rental homes, cozy cottages, and quaint cabins.
“There’s so much to do and so little time” could easily be the Traverse City area motto. For outdoor enthusiasts the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a phenomenal setting for hikers and picnickers who relish the awe-inspiring views of Lake Michigan from atop huge dunes and the miles of trails and preserved historic farmsteads. Water sports action is the draw on Grand Traverse Bay where canoeing, tubing, rafting, parasailing, and riding personal watercraft are among the more popular activities.
For kid’s activities, The Great Lakes Children’s Museum is a fun and educational way to learn about the Great Lakes with hands-on interactive displays where you can explore a lighthouse and pilot a freighter.
Wine enthusiasts love the 30 area wineries like Bel Lago Vineyards and winery and Chateau Chantal, which offer tours and tastings. Golfers can play on more than 20 area courses highlighted by The Bear at the Grand Traverse Resort, A-Ga-Ming Golf Resort, and The Leelanau Club at Bahle Farms.
Families relish space to spread out and store luggage and vacation equipment. Multi-bedroom vacation homes abound in the area. Some of the amenities you’ll find are hardwood floors, large, overstuffed couches and chairs, spacious closets, and marble-laden bathrooms. Moreover, a fully equipped kitchen allows you to eschew pricey restaurants and prepare money saving meals ranging from picnic fare to steaks or fish on the grill to favorite recipes from back home.
