Winter — The “Enchanted Season” in Traverse City [Sponsored]

Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau
Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau

Traverse City doesn’t go to sleep in December. Instead, it becomes a magnet for skiers, snowmobilers and snowshoe hikers who consider this one of the country’s most beautiful winter destinations – and for visitors who know that this is the best time to sample its cozy indoor hideaways, tempting cuisine and vibrant music scene.

The busy pace of summer and fall has subsided — but everything you love about Traverse City is still here: great restaurants, charming downtown boutiques, wine tasting on the Old Mission and Leelanau peninsulas, and exhilarating outdoor recreation. And with fewer crowds and great off-season pricing, now is the perfect time to follow your compass to Michigan’s True North!
