As summer slowly approaches, Michiganders can’t help but think about all that our beloved “up north” has to offer. One of my favorite places to go is a short four hour drive from Metro-Detroit and worth the drive. Wineries, beaches, downtown, shopping, incredible views, Lake Michigan… Traverse City seems to be the definition of “Pure Michigan”. It is a great place to vacation with the family, a few couples, your significant other, or a group of friends. TC is also the perfect place for a weekend get-away, wine tasting tour, wedding, or in my case… a bachelorette party.
I found myself in Traverse City for a long weekend in August surrounded by about 20 women who are closest to me. It can be difficult and pricey to find a place in the summer months to house that many, as most rentals want you to commit to a week-long stay. With a little hesitation, we booked five rooms at a hotel based on my maid of honor’s confidence that the place was beautiful. Our ladies weekend getaway turned out to be one of the best; largely in part to our stay at the Bayshore Resort.
