About Lake Michigan - Traverse City Area

Lake Michigan- Traverse City Area, MI

The Lake Michigan- Traverse City Area, is located in the northern most part of Michigan. Traverse City sits on the southern end of Grand Traverse Bay which opens up to the top of Lake Michigan.

The bay measures 32 miles long and 12 miles wide and is divided into East Grand Traverse Bay and West Grand Traverse Bay. 

History

Traverse City is within Grand Traverse County, which was established in 1840. The County was later named on April 7th, 1851.

Some of the earliest human inhabitants of the Lake Michigan area were the Hopewell Indians. Their culture declined after 800 AD, and for the next few hundred years, the region was home to the Late Woodland Indians.

The French explorer Jean Nicolet is believed to have been the first European explorer to reach Lake Michigan, between the years 1634 and 1638.

East and West Grand Traverse Bay

Grand Traverse Bay is slip by the Old Mission Peninsula, which divides the area into east and west bays. 

The West Bay is fed by the Baordman River and is dotted with dozes of cherry orchards. 

These orchards have helped the Grand Traverse Bay area earn the title of "Cherry Capital of the World."

The National Cherry Festival, held each year, is a massive summer celebration held to rejoice and honor the cities long history in the cherry business. This festival boasts over 150 family-friendly events such as concerts, pie-eating contests, firework shows and many more.

Grand Traverse Bay's west side is also home to Gull Island, a bird rookery owned by the Nature Conservancy. 

Lake Michigan - Traverse City's East Bay also features cherry orchards, but this side of the Bay's claim to fame is its wineries. 

Traverse City State Park is located on Grand Traverse Bay's east side, as well. The Park covers 47 acres and a quarter mile of beautiful bay beachfront. 

Beyond cherries, wine and fun times, Grand Traverse Bay is known for fantastic fishing, especially off Leelanau Peninsula. Many anglers enjoy fishing for large and smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, and rainbow trout.

Residents of the Lake Michigan- Traverse City Area also often enjoy outdoor activities such as boating, water skiing, paddle boarding, bird watching and swimming. 

Off the water, Traverse City Film Festival is an exceptional way for the whole family to learn and appreciate new and old cinema together. Pirate's Cove putt putt golf and amusement center is another popular attraction in the Lake Michigan - Traverse City area.
