Visit a historical Coast Guard Rescue Stations, just a few miles from The Homestead. Stop for a picnic at one of five breathtaking scenic Lake Michigan overlooks on Pierce Stocking Drive. Drive out to one of the largest collections of player pianos, jukeboxes and phonographs in the world at The Music House Museum. Tour the Point Betsie or Grand Traverse lighthouse, or a preserved fishing village; take a boat trip to the Manitou Islands; learn about Michigan’s first inhabitants; or catch a movie in Traverse City at a lovingly restored movie theater from the early 1900′s. Though we wouldn’t blame you if the only sight you want to see is the sun setting over Sleeping Bear Bay.
