Lake area in Tranas is beautiful, nice place to walk around with a walking path very peaceful area, sitting in front of the lake you get a peace of mind and waiting till the sunset comes
Just a short distance outside Tranås, Lake Sommen is a popular summer cottage area with dozens of islands and plenty of surrounding forested areas.
Being in the center of town, and reputed for being one of Sweden's widest streets, Storgatan makes for a pleasant morning or evening stroll.
During the summer, you may catch a parade with marching bands and people in local folk costume.
Storgatan 22, Tranas, 57324, SE
Good for: Business
Strand Baren literally means The Beach Bar. Strand Baren has an excellent choice of dishes and a nice outdoor deck. The staff here are real friendly.
Favorite Dish: Hard to say what the favorite dish is--I can honestly say almost all are good.
At Stadt Hotel you can really go out and let loose and have a crazy time. The crowd is younger (usually under 30) but that's not to say all ages don't visit. Stadt is open all summer and there's an outdoor area. Come at 11 p.m. and leave your troubles at the door.
Dress Code: Trendy--but they don't have any requirements
Pub Babar is usually not open during the summer. But on a spring, fall, or cold dark winter day, there's nothing like going to Babar at about 11 at night--people are loose, real friendly, and like to get a little crazy in a fun sort of way.
Dress Code: Dress a bit trendy, but not too trendy. People of all ages come here so people aren't real self-conscious if you feel out of place

Transportation to and from Tranås is very good as it is on the main line between Stockholm and Copenhagen. Nontheless, the fast X2000 trains do not stop in Tranås very often, so you often have to take local trains to connect. If you miss your connection, however, the SJ railroad will arrange for a taxi. How many railroads do this? Well done in my book.
On the side of the train tracks opposite the town center are some lovely wooden Victorian homes, one of which is reputed to be Tranås' oldest home.
There is a pleasant park with swamp land and interesting mossy landscapes over in back of the Town Hall. Frequented by joggers and people out for a quiet walk, it is a gorgeous little park in the middle of town.
