If you’re in Michigan, you must do something lake-oriented. I don’t own a boat myself, but I have a few friends that do dock at this Marina and they love it. It’s small but very accessible to downtown Traverse City. The staff here is extremely kind and the amenities they provide are appreciated. This marina is also really closed to the zoo and the beaches, so it makes sailing a lot more scenic. They’re open May 15th through October 20th.
