There are plenty of fun summer traditions to enjoy in the Traverse City area, including sailing on Grand Traverse Bay and wine tasting on the Leelanau Peninsula. Another time-honored summer tradition is cherry picking in Michigan – and the Leelanau Peninsula just so happens to be a great place to enjoy that, too! In fact, the Traverse City area is considered the Cherry Capital of the World and thus is the perfect place to spend a few cherry-focused days this summer.

Beyond visiting orchards and enjoying a delightful afternoon cherry picking in Michigan, summer is also when the National Cherry Festival comes to Traverse City. This year marks the 97th anniversary of this spectacular event, which offers 7-days of cherry-infused fun in one of the most beautiful parts of Michigan. Get in on all the fun and spend a few days with us at our Bed and Breakfast in Traverse City!
