Lights, camera, action–this is what you can enjoy in Traverse City, Michigan all year long. Of course during the renowned Traverse City Film Festival there’s more of a show but this is a happening place every season of the year.
Often voted as one of the most pleasant places to live, retire to and, of course, visit, Traverse City appeals to all kinds of people, young and old. A quick look at your Discovery Map reveals that water plays a big part in the attraction to this northern Michigan destination and since it’s freshwater, that means the area is made up of fertile ground, one that has produced beautiful farmland. This – plus its agreeable climate and most certainly lots of hard work – has made Traverse City the tart cherry capital of the United States. With the majority of our country’s tart cherries grown here, it might even rank as the tart cherry capital of the world. It’s no wonder the name of its airport is Cherry Capital Airport (TVC). How sweet is that!
