On my 2nd day in Traverse City I drove my bicycle 10 minutes from my lodging to Boardman Lake and cycled the four mile loop around the lake. If you missed Day 1, it’s here.
It’s a relaxing and pretty ride.
Then I cycled into Traverse City and the waterfront to explore a bit.
This is one of the waterfront beaches.
I’d read about a very short hike to see the “hippie” trees so I drove about 10 minutes to check it out. Here’s the beginning of the hike.
Within a few minutes I was there.
I love to see eclectic things. So colorful and unexpected.
Less than three minutes away is The Village at Grand Traverse Commons. It’s a complex of buildings filled with shopping and dining.
I had brunch at the Red Spire Brunch House, located there.
I drove back to my Airbnb and took a nap. To finish my day I went to see a movie …Where the Crawdads Sing. I’d read the book and the movie was very good.
