Traverse City is a special place, a place we return to time and time again. For others, it's your first time heading up north to discover all the region has to offer. Whether you choose to visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes, take a scenic drive to the lakeshore, play outdoors, or take a lighthouse tour, you will find that fall serves up plenty of adventures.
Autumn is a dazzling season in Traverse City. Oranges, reds and yellows paint the rolling hills, giving the perfect opportunity for a stunning color tour. Experience the beauty on a scenic bike ride, or kayak down a crystal-clear river.
Are there mountains in northern Michigan? You bet! We refer to them as "mountains of sand" otherwise known as the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. A year-round attraction, it is a special place where time slows down and where you can connect with each other.
