It’s no wonder that summer in Traverse City is the favorite time of year for so many. From the area’s miles of sugar-sand beaches to crystal-clear bays, lakes and rivers to the seemingly endless hiking and biking trails, there are always memories to be made when you’re Up North in the summer!

Annual events include the National Cherry Festival, the Traverse City Film Festival, the Traverse City Wine and Art Festival and the always-popular Cedar Polka Fest. For those looking for a serene getaway, book an evening cruise on the majestic Tall Ship Manitou or go charter fishing on Lake Michigan. And don’t miss experiencing the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore – a true “bucket list” place to visit.
A Breath of Heaven Bed & Breakfast will help add to your summer fun!
