Sometimes it’s tough deciding on a place to stay especially with a family that likes to do different things. Our sponsor Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, located in Upper Michigan, is the answer to your problems –a Midwest escape that truly offers something for everyone. Here you and your family can spend time together relaxing and enjoying the natural beauty of the greater Traverse City region, or should you choose, a little alone time for yourself!
Situated on 900 sprawling acres, you’re bound to find something for everyone at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Mommies wishing to recharge (and get the much-needed alone time) can enjoy the full-service spa. Golf aficionados can enjoy one or all of the three championship golf courses. Families that want to shop ‘til they drop will love the resort’s very own shopping complex that includes an active wear shop, a boutique, and a toy store among others. Do you have a sweet tooth? The Resort has you covered with not only one, but two Dylan’s Candy sweet shops. Kids will also enjoy kids night out, duck races, organized children’s activities, an electronic game arcade, and who can forget their huge indoor water playground that can easily be mistaken for a small waterpark? Can’t stand being so far away from Fido? No problem, there’s a 24-hour dog care facility on site!
Adventure seekers will enjoy stand-up paddle boarding and bouncing on the water trampoline as well as the pontoons, wave runners, kayaks, and jet ski rentals? If you’re looking for a tamer experience, catch some rays on the private sugar-sand beach overlooking the East Grand Traverse Bay. In addition to their amazing private beach, the Resort offers other activities such as bonfires (complete with s’mores!), tennis, movie nights, beach activities, live musical entertainment, and so much more!
Need a little time away from the kids? Take advantage of Grand Traverse Resort’s in-room babysitting service or licensed daycare. Then hop on the Resort’s shuttle that stops at the Turtle Creek Casino, or dine at the many foodie restaurants around town.

With a multitude of beaches, a vibrant downtown area, a rising foodie scene, and cherries everywhere you turn, Traverse City is the ultimate destination. Venture a little further and you can visit Sleeping Bear Dunes, dubbed “the most beautiful place in America” or explore a couple of lighthouses. Grand Traverse Resort makes it more convenient for those looking for a getaway; it’s just ten minutes away from Traverse City Cherry Capital Airport.
