The Village at Grand Traverse Commons
Great restaurants, Stella's and Pepenero's, shopping thru the Mercato shops, coffee, wine, or take a guided tour of the tunnels and hear stories from times past.
Historic Traverse City State Hospital was renovated and is now a beautiful destination spot filled with shops, restaurants, hiking trails, wineries and microbreweries.
Historic Village. One of the jewels of Traverse City. Shopping, historic, dining, wine tasting.
Within walking distance of your stay, it’s a nice way to explore some hiking trails in town. Start your hike by Spanglish - 1333 Yellow Dr., Traverse City, MI 49684.
The old State Hospital has transformed into a hub for shopping, dining and exploring! Head to Red Spire for brunch, Spanglish for lunch, Stella for dinner and Left Foot Charley for wine in between! There are also miles of trails to explore.
“The hub of the Traverse City Film Festival and in the heart of downtown. Between the state, and its sister theater, the Bijou, there is always a great lineup of blockbusters and independent films, as well as family faves. Great for a rainy day or in the winter. ”
“One of our favorite spots to grab lunch and a cocktail at one of the local food trucks. ”
“On permanent display is the Inuit Gallery featuring Inuit stonecut, stencil, lithograph, etching, aquatint & chine-colle' prints, tapestries, sculptures, and artifacts. Different exhibitions are on display throughout the year. Check the Dennos website for current installations.”
“Mission Point Lighthouse has been a Traverse City and Old Mission Peninsula icon for decades. Located at the north end of a picturesque drive along M-37 through cherry orchards and vineyards, Mission Point Lighthouse stands as a classic piece of Michigan history. While it no longer guides mariners through West Grand Traverse Bay as it did from September 10, 1870 until it was decommissioned in 1933, Mission Point Lighthouse now offers visitors a peek into what life was like around the turn of the century for lighthouse keepers and for others who lived and worked in the area at the time.”
