Shop, Eat, Explore Downtown Traverse City

By day, check out the blocks of darling boutiques, antique stores, specialty shops, foodie emporiums (serving up tastes of wine, olive oil, fruit preserves, fudge and chocolate … ) and side-walk cafes in Traverse City’s walkable, historic downtown. When you’ve quenched your appetite for shopping and grazing, long stretches of warm beach and cool Lake Michigan waters await across Grand View Parkway. By night, have dinner out in one of the city’s fine restaurants. Then take in a movie at Michael Moore’s renovated State Theatre, or see what’s playing at the City Opera House. After, watch the boats go rock-a-bye under the stars at Clinch Marina, then top it all off with drinks 10 floors up at the Beacon Lounge in the iconic Park Place Hotel, while the lights round the bay twinkle below. 231-922-2050, DOWNTOWNTC.COM.
