Top Reasons to Move to Traverse City, MI
- Festivals, festivals, festivals! Traverse City makes sure it keeps its residents out of the house during the summer months. In early July, attend the week-long National Cherry Festival for plenty of cherry related fun! Highlights include cherry tastings, events, fairs, fireworks and a parade. From late July to early August, you'll find the city awash with a glint of Hollywood - and the occasional movie star - at the Traverse City Film Festival. Co-founded by Michigan filmmaker Michael Moore, the festival features showings of independent features, documentaries, and classic films at cinemas throughout the city. For a perfect summer's evening, head to the Open Space during the festival, where classic films are shown for free.
