Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, US

The largest city in northern Michigan, Traverse City is situated at the head of the West Arm of Traverse Bay.

The area is known for its cherry cultivation and hosts an annual week-long cherry festival; there are also lots of vineyards in the vicinity so wine tasting is a popular activity.

Nearby lies Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, a nationally protected stretch of pristine islands, towering sand-dunes and inland lakes, all along the coast of Lake Michigan. Here visitors can take ranger-led guided walks, drive the scenic Pierce Stocking loop, climb the enormous dunes, or take a day trip to pretty South Manitou Island.
