Michigan, you’re a real treat. 🍂 We’ve had the opportunity to spend a few weekends in Traverse City, Michigan and we highly recommend you visit this charming town in the late spring, summer, or fall! Traverse City is about 6 hours from Chicago, located in the northwest edge of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. This is a perfect trip for foodies and wine-lovers who also love to be outdoors!

Here’s our recap for you to start planning your trip next August!
