    2-lane access only

    The only way into or out of Traverse City is on a two-lane highway, with oncoming traffic. Plenty of it. In fact, Traverse City is the second largest population center in the USA that still has no 4-lane access to the national highway grid (San Angelo TX is the largest).
    If you plan to arrive or leave Traverse City on a weekend in the summer, traffic will be bumper-to-bumper for at least 20 miles on all roads in and out of town. Don't even think about passing. (Bad enough at other times.)

    Stay away from downtown in a car along the bay. The traffic is horrible, especially during Cherry Festival with everyone walking around.

    Good advice: Use a bike to get around. They are faster than cars in traffic and safer too.
