Best time to visit Traverse City, MI, USA?

  • We recommend visiting Traverse City in the early summer when temperatures are still warm but room rates are cheaper. For an accommodation for two, expect to pay approximately $155 per night during this period. That's 25% less than what you would have paid in July. Temperatures hover in the high 60s, just a bit colder than the average 75°F you would experience during peak season.
  • The busiest season in Traverse City is during the summer so expect hotel and rental rates to surge during this period. You should also try avoiding the Cherry Festival week (June 30th to July 8th) and the Film Festival week (July 24th - 31st), accommodations get particularly expensive during these dates.
  • Be prepared for some snowfalls if you go to Traverse City in November - April.
