Tips from the community

It’s fitting that the “cherry capital of the world” would also be a hotspot for cherry blossom viewing (check out the self-guided Blossom Tour Guide). For cherry blossom peeping, it’s best to drive along Old Mission peninsula to see the trees intertwined with vineyards along a route that also affords views of West and East Grand Traverse Bay. May is the best time to visit Traverse City, Michigan to see cherry blossoms in bloom in Northern Michigan, but July is also a popular time because of the National Cherry Festival.
