Fodor's: Traverse City one of America's 10 Best Small Towns

TRAVERSE CITY — The editors at Fodor's Travel have named Traverse City one of America's 10 Best Small Towns, adding to a list of accolades that the city and region continue to garner.

Fodor's Travel said the 10 towns chosen "are attracting visitors with an often unexpected — and surprisingly sophisticated — array of independent and locally minded cultural, outdoor and culinary offerings, all minus the urban price tags." Other cities on the list include Healdsburg, Calif., Bozeman, Mont., Sedona, Ariz.,St. Augustine, Fla., Provincetown on Cape Cod, Mass., Brattleboro, Vt., Door County, Wis., Galena, Ill. and Walla Walla, Wash.

The editors cited Traverse City for its natural wonders, including beaches, ski areas, forests and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, also singling out the food scene, vineyards and breweries.

“It’s just continuing the string of great accolades we’ve had over the last several years,” said Brad Van Dommelen, president of the Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau. “It’s wonderful to see we continue to be on a variety of different media’s radar like Fodor’s, National Geographic, USA Today and all the other ones we’ve received over the last several years.

“It continues to keep Traverse City in a very great limelight that really helps create interest and awareness across the nation.”
