We will enjoy breakfast before departing the Grand Hotel and heading back to the mainland and on to Traverse City, MI. It’s a short drive to the beautiful Traverse City, located on the crystal clear twin arms of Traverse Bay, called East Bay and West Bay. The long deep lakes and roller-coaster hills that give Traverse City its splendid natural setting, were carved long ago by ancient glaciers. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a breathtaking combination of water, sky and towering sand dunes on Lake Michigan’s shoreline. Every summer visitor’s flock to Traverse City for their annual Cherry Festival held in August but we will still be able to taste cherry pies, jams sauces, juices and candies. Grand Traverse Resort & Spa is located near Traverse City, Mich. along the sandy shores of Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay and is known as the area's top golf resort and spa getaway. Pamper yourself with a stroll along the shore, or relax in the spa, enjoy the beach or pool along with a whirlpool. If you’re up for some action!! The Grand Traverse Resort offers a free shuttle 24 hours a day to the Casino. B
