The United States is filled with quaint mountain towns fighting for the prestigious title of “Best Winter Destination.”
Sorry Aspen, Boulder, and Park City, you’ve been beaten by a town you’ve probably never heard of.
Welcome to Traverse City, Michigan.
Far away from any mountain base, this small town of 15,000 sits on a bay of Lake Michigan almost directly between the equator and the North Pole.
From secret speakeasies to dimmed lights lining snow-covered streets and snowshoe prints throughout surrounding pine forests, there isn’t much to deny that it’s the epitome of a Winter Wonderland.
