    Traverse City, Michigan: The Charming Cherry Capital of the World

One of USA Today’s 10 Great Places for Local Wines, Traverse City draws visitors year-round with its fine Riesling wines siphoned from grape gorges in the fertile Old Mission Peninsula. The proclaimed "Cherry Capital of the World,” tucked between the pinky and index finger on the hand-shaped state of Michigan, is bordered by scenic Grand Traverse Bay to the north and the sprawling Traverse City State Forest Area to the east. The town's downtown and waterfront thrive with gourmet restaurants and local landmarks such as State Theater, a recently restored art-house cinema built in 1949; families can drop by for the $0.25 Saturday-morning matinee. A drive north up the peninsula eventually ends at the whitewashed Old Mission Point Lighthouse, a local relic originally constructed in 1870.

About a half-hour drive to the west lies Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, a gorgeous 35-mile stretch of sandy bluffs along Lake Michigan. Sleeping Bear was recently named the Most Beautiful Place in America by Good Morning America for its beaches, idyllic small-town shops in the surrounding neighborhoods, and its massive sand dunes. For an introduction to the national park, take the 7-mile Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive and park at the Lake Michigan Overlook, where you can spend hours admiring the panoramic views or run down the 450-foot sand dune.
