TraverseCity | Spring Outdoor Recreation & Activities
Traverse City Tourism (TCT) is a nonprofit corporation that serves as the area’s official destination marketing organization.Our focused mission is to stimulate economic growth through the attraction of convention business and leisure tourism development. Located along the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline Traverse City is an incredible four-season destination in Michigan.
Fall color is advancing in the Traverse City area, particularly at higher elevations to the east and south of the city and the interior of the Leelanau Peninsula. Individual maples are showing bright red and orange, and there is some spot color from the golden yellow of the poplars, but for the most part there isn’t yet the kind of massed color we expect to see soon.
There’s nothing quite like breaking a sweat during a long, satisfying run come autumn, when the sun shines and the air cools. Fall is an ideal time for outdoor exploring in northern Michigan, not only for its just-right temps but for its amazing views around every corner.
