Welcome to Traverse City

At the southern end of Grand Traverse Bay on upper Lake Michigan, Traverse City began as an 1839 mission settlement on the narrow Old Mission peninsula that extends north from the present city into the Bay. The area is famous for the production of tart cherries, and a yearly cherry festival attracts about 500,000 visitors. Traverse City offers eclectic dining and shopping, while the Boardman River and Boardman Lake make watersports and excellent flyfishing available right in town. Northwest of Traverse City, the Leelanau Peninsula is known for the scenic M-22 lakeshore highway, dozens of wineries, the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and the Grand Traverse Lighthouse at the northern tip.
