What is Traverse Traveler?

If you’re visiting the Traverse City region, YOU are a Traverse Traveler. And it’s our job to be your handy guide as you explore this beautiful community.

Traverse Traveler appWhether you’re an adventure traveler, history buff, culinary tourist, wine lover or are seeking some family fun along our Pure Michigan shores—Traverse Traveler is here to help.

Our adventure began in 2001 with a little card display created for the hotel lobby. Each display offers folding pocket cards with useful information and a custom map for an area winery, brewery, nearby restaurant or attraction. And the best part is they fit in a pocket or purse. How handy is that?

Today you can find Traverse Traveler card displays in over 70 hotels, resorts and wineries throughout Grand Traverse, Benzie and Leelanau county. We believe there will always be a need for grab-and-go information for area visitors. And for the tech savvy, there’s the Traverse Traveler app.

Traverse Traveler was the first FREE app in northern Michigan sharing information about lodging, dining, activities and services in the region. We hope you’ll use our mobile guide while visiting the region, and as a resource for planning your trip to Traverse City.
