The city's claim to fame lies in its lush vineyards and wine scene. Traverse City is one of the fastest-growing wine regions in the country, producing some of the finest wines around.

Let's not forget about those delicious cherries that we see coming out of the Traverse City area. On top of that too, Traverse City, is only a short distance away from the Mackinaw Bridge. So the next time you head up north, definitely consider this destination a must-stop.
