Explore Traverse City & Mackinac Island


If you are looking to visit a destination that is beautiful all year long, look no further than Traverse City, Michigan. Near the time of cherry harvest, the city hosts the annual week-long National Cherry Festival, attracting approximately 500,000 visitors. The surrounding countryside also produces grapes, and is one of the centers of wine production in the Midwest. The Traverse City area features varied natural attractions, including freshwater beaches, vineyards, a National Lakeshore, downhill skiing areas, and numerous forests. In 2009, TripAdvisor named Traverse City the number two small town travel destination in the United States. With a package like this, you're sure to see the best of what Traverse City has to offer!

Mackinac Island is the truly "all natural" theme park of America. Limited to transportation of horse and buggy, bicycle or foot, surrounded by water, it has escaped the vast changes of time.

Its real Victorian image is preserved and enhanced by a small population of 500 permanent residents and scores of summer residents, maintaining bluff cottages in original state. Families, especially children, love their relatively new found "mobility", exploring the historic, natural beauty of Mackinac Island State Park, honored by National Geographic as one of the ten finest in America.
