Parks & Nature

Overlooking Lake Michigan, these large sand dunes are considered one of the top 10 family vacation sites in the country. Along with walking out onto the dunes, Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive is also worthwhile.

A lovely bike or hiking trail that extends from the City of Acme on East Bay through Traverse City and all the way to Suttons Bay on West Bay. Rent your bikes at Brick Wheels or McLains on 8th St. Our favorite part is the peaceful West Bay section or the trek around Boardman Lake.

Downtown Traverse City is such a fun shopping experience -- a true throwback to days gone by. The heart of the city is the 2 block section on Front St between Park and Union. It even features 2 downtown movie theatres -- Bijou by the Bay and the State.
