Great Destinations Radio Show: Traverse City

posted in: Great Destinations | 0

Keri visits the lakeshore destination of Traverse City, USA. This funky college town is home to 40-storey sand dunes, award winning wines and many micro breweries.

There are so many craft brewers, visitors can go on a brewery tour by canoe, paddling between pints. Locals are also proud their Michigan town is America’s cherry capital. Keri learned that they put the fruit in everything, when he visited a shop dedicated to cherry produce.
