Hotel Indigo traverse city

The great outdoors with an urban edge.  Standing among revamped lumberyards, sawmills and canneries, Hotel Indigo® Traverse City reflects the new life and vibrant spirit of its waterfront Warehouse District neighborhood. Paying homage to its past —  the kind of logging history that could sprout tall tales like Paul Bunyan's — the hotel features include modern guest rooms featuring wood details a 19th-century white-pine lumber baron would love. Start your day here with locally brewed coffee before heading out to taste Michigan's famous tart cherries. The freshwater beaches of the bay nearby are ready for you to explore as well. Unwind at the sawmill-inspired rooftop bar for views of West Grand Traverse Bay paired with local craft brews and wine.

Extension Trip - Mackinac Island, MI | August 22nd-25th

Mackinac Island sits in Lake Huron, between Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas. Mackinac Island State Park, with trails, woods and the limestone Arch Rock formation, covers most of the island. Founded in 1780, Fort Mackinac is a walled cluster of military buildings on a coastal bluff. The jewel of the Great Lakes. Enjoy beautiful vistas, shopping, and carriage rides during the day, and watch the city transform at night with its happening music and bar scene. Mackinac Island has something for everyone.

On the shores of Mackinac Island, genuine hospitality and simple comfort reign supreme. Located on the island’s sunrise side, Mission Point spans 18 acres of waterfront property on Lake Huron, creating an unparalleled setting for guests to savor life’s simple pleasures. From kite flying and flower pressing to biking and bocce ball, Mission Point captures the essence of Michigan’s most beloved island retreat.
