While Traverse City, MI might be adequately described as a “charming small town”, there are an enormous number of ways to stay entertained in the area in a very big destination manner. Whether it’s 180 miles of Lake Michigan sand, the foodie-pleasing dining options or the countless paths for hiking and exploration, Traverse City has been turning heads lately and landing itself on the itineraries of choosy travelers worldwide.
If you’re staying in a Traverse City hotel you can easily explore the islands while waiting for the next nibble at Spider Lake, a local favorite for a day spent fishing. Traverse City State Park welcomes sunbathers with open arms and wide open beaches, with water that begs you to come for a swim...during the summer months, at least. The Traverse City trails system is a network of winding pathways for hiking, biking and jogging, but come winter they’re also well known for quality snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Or, for another kind of outdoor wonder, marvel at the incredible Sleeping Bear Dunes, with forested islands and freshwater beaches and an unforgettable backdrop.
Scratch your shopper’s itch on Front Street, where you’ll find boutiques and restaurants that satisfy your appetites for great deals and top-shelf dining. Take a tour and lift your spirits at The Grand Traverse Distillery to see how some of your new favorite flavors are created. Swing for the fairway at one of dozens of surrounding golf courses, catch a concert at the beautifully restored City Opera House or try your luck at a casino.
With so many options, you may find it hard to choose how to spend your time. One decision that should be easy to make is booking your stay at one of our IHG hotels in Traverse City. With the best value for the price and fantastic locations near all of the city’s main attractions, you can sleep peacefully knowing you’ve made the right call before heading out for another day of adventure.
