Travel Tips for Traverse City

Don't Miss the Boardman Lake Trail

by ciaobellamici

In 2004 we moved into town from the country (first time as city dwellers) and I was preparing myself for city living. Missing the woods and trails of Leelanau County was something I would have to endure... or so I thought.
Soon after the move, I became aware of TART trails, an amazing group who work to provide trails within the city and outlying areas. They had worked with landowners to create a trail along the lake within steps of our new home and in October 05, it was completed.
It is a wonderful trail on the east side of the Boardman Lake in Traverse City, beginning at the Hull Park by the newly built Traverse Area District Library on Woodmere Avenue.
Currently 2 miles long, reaching to S. Airport Road and another park, it will some day reach around the entire Lake.

Sleeping Bear Point Maritime Museum

by deecat

Hours: Mid May to Early September: 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Daily
early September to Mid October: Noon to 5:00 p.m. Weekend (Sat & Sun only)

The Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station Maritime Museum is located just west of Glen Haven. It is the original Sleeping Bear Point U.S. Life-Saving Station [which was moved to its present location because of the encroaching sand dunes were beginning to bury it in sand!]

During the summer, each day at 3:00 p.m., there is a re-enactment of the breeches buoy rescue drill that utilizes Raggedy Ann & Andy as the shipwreck victims. Children love this and are encouraged to participate in the drill.

Here, you will find exhibits that cover the U.S. Life-Saving Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, and Great Lakes shipping history. A room on the second floor is outfitted as a Steamer Wheelhouse with a great view of the Manitou Passage shipping channel.

You will learn that each station had a "keeper, often called "Captain who had overall responsibility for the station. He supervised a crew of six to eight surfmen hired from the local community. Although the Keeper worked year around, the surfmen worked during the shipping season from April to mid-December.

The waters of the Manitou Passage could be treacherous; thus, shipwrecks occurred frequently. Sleeping Bear Point was one of the life-saving stations that guarded this passage which saw ships that were traveling between Chicago and the Straits of Mackinac.

If you havent ever been to Traverse City before, YOU NEED TO! I grew up in Traverse City, and have seen it blossom into a tourist mecca. Each year Traverse City brings in 500,000+ people for the National Cherry Festival alone. It is very easy to get into Traverse City by air. Cherry Capital Airport is served by Northwest Airlines, Mesaba Airlines, Express Airlines 1, Air Wisconsin (United Airlines), and American Eagle (American Airlines). A new terminal is under construction, and will be much larger than the current terminal and will ultimately bring more airline service.

I am in the US Navy and try to get back to Traverse City during the summer. My wife and kids love it. So much to do!

Here are some websites...
