No Traverse City trip is complete without at least one day spent shopping the quaint boutiques, specialty shops, art galleries, and antique shops. Downtown Traverse City is a destination unto itself, with its charming tree-lined streets, historic buildings and sidewalk cafes. Take a 5-minute drive to the Village at Grand Traverse Commons to soak up some local history while you investigate more boutiques, art galleries, wineries, and restaurants.
The 40+ wineries and tasting rooms on the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula boast some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Huge rolling hills are blanketed in acres of vineyards and fruit orchards — including more than 2 ½ million cherry trees, earning Traverse City the designation of Cherry Capital of the World!
