Exploring the Area
It’s just as important to get out and explore the many wonders of Traverse City as it is to spend ample time cozied up in one of our 1-bedroom Traverse City luxury rentals. While you’re here, take time to enjoy an afternoon with the Traverse Tall Ship Company. Guests who book their place onboard can enjoy scenic cruises on the bay that range from two hours to overnight adventures. Choose from 19th-century ship replicas or sailing yachts that make you feel like royalty on the waves.
If you’re one that leans more towards enjoying time on the sand, head over to Clinch Park where you can enjoy a picnic. Of course, if you are looking to get out and personal with the natural world, head over to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, which features The Dune Climb, a challenging hike, but at the top will give you stunning views of Glen Lake and Lake Michigan. What’s more, during the winter one can even sled down for a quick rush of adrenaline and excitement. Of course, one could always spend some time exploring the various lighthouses that dot the beaches. You’ll find that some of these even are more than happy to let you inside to see the gritty details regarding these historic and picturesque stops.
If one is looking to get to know the city itself, make sure you check out the Hi-5 Rickshaw Tour Traverse City, which will help you not only get the lay of the land when you first arrive, but you’ll also find that it is a great way to find out more about the city you now are calling home for a short time. You’ll see everything from the downtown area to the old asylum, the marina area, and many other places as your driver takes you around and fills you in on all the local knowledge. To make it even better, you’ll find that the tour is completely private, allowing you and your guests to enjoy the tour together without having to share the experience (also making it perfect for the family introverts). If you’re looking for a really interesting tour, head over to the village, which is the old local asylum which has been renovated. They will take you through the buildings that were once the hospital, as well as even give you a tour of the underground steam tunnels, which is always an eerie sight. Afterward, stay around the property as you’ll find the 63-acre complex is also on a 480-acre preserve. This means that even after exploring the buildings and tunnels, you’ll have a full nature preserve to peruse and explore. You might even like making your way to the Hippie Tree, which is said to house the spirits of the old patients who died at the hospital. With this eerie story behind it, many locals artists take the time to paint the tree, giving it a body of various vibrant colors as years of different colors of paint show through this intriguing sight.
