Traverse City Beach Hotel Guide

As your feet melt into the sand and your gaze floats across the horizon, you can’t help but feel silly about your expectations before arriving here. Whereas you once only associated mornings at the beach and afternoons at wineries with California or some international locale, you’re nowhere of the sort, yet that’s exactly what’s on today’s agenda. This is the beachside escape you’ve been wanting, wise wanderer. Welcome to Traverse City, Michigan.

With nearly 30 freshwater beaches, more than 50 unique wineries, and an abundance of outdoor activities, there’s plenty to keep you occupied on your visit to northern Michigan. And if you’re planning a trip to Traverse City, beachfront hotels are where you want to stay. But before taking off on your Midwestern adventure, there are a couple of questions you might like answered:

What are the beaches like near Traverse City?

More than two dozen beaches are scattered around Traverse City, each with its own charm and personality Here are a few of the most popular spots, with a glimpse of what you can expect at each of them:

  • Bryant Park Beach: Ideal for families with small children, this beach has playgrounds aplenty and lots of grills for your barbecuing needs.
  • Clinch Park Beach: Spanning more than 1,500 feet along the waterfront, Clinch Park is another great beach for picnics and spending time with the family.
  • East Bay Park Beach: Located at the mouth of Mitchell Creek, this alluring beach has some of the shallowest water around, and is in proximity to many of Traverse City’s must-see spots.
  • Sunset Park Beach: This relaxing escape is ideal for quiet afternoon along the coast.
  • West End Beach: One of the busiest beaches in Traverse City, this hangout is as popular with boaters as it is with sunbathers. Volleyball is also a favorite pastime here, and the nearness to downtown means you dine at many spots within steps of the sand.

When should I visit Traverse City’s beaches?

Based on the kind of vacation you’re in the mood for, you can book a stay at the beach when it’s best for you. Here are some reasons to visit during each season:

  • Spring: Expect minimal crowds and cheap rates on Traverse City hotels on the beach during this time of year when the landscape turns stunning shades of green and the beach starts to warm.
  • Summer: This is prime-time for sun worshippers, so if your sole reason for visiting this city is to spend time on the sand and in the water, this season is your best bet. Enjoy a shoreline that spans as far as the eye can see, or head inland for some excellent cycling and hiking trails.
  • Fall: The still-refreshing waters of Lake Michigan make it easy to enjoy the summer weather well into September. This is also the best time of year for wine tasting.
  • Winter: Michigan certainly gets its fair share of snow. No one’s going to stop you from taking a blustery walk or polar bear club dip in the frigid waters. But most locals migrate toward the hills, dusting off their skis, snowboards, and snowshoes in lieu of their swimsuits at this time of year.

Why wait another minute to book your stay at one of the Traverse City beach hotels? Expedia makes it easy to reserve a room at the Grand Beach Resort Hotel, the Holiday Inn Resort West Bay Beach, or anywhere you want to stay. Lock down your lakeside room today and stretch out on the sand tomorrow.
