Traverse City

Spend your autumn in a place where everything comes together. 

Where a color tour up the shoreline of West Grand Traverse Bay winds into a stroll through the downtown shopping district. Where the keepsakes, authentic cuisine and colorful scenery continuously remind you that you're in a pretty great place.

This fall may be a bit different from others you've spent up north. But when the timing is right, we look forward to hosting you safely. If you're planning a future visit, please review our Reopening Safely page for more helpful information.
