Annual 'Traverse City' magazine in print

Information helps visitors plan their area vacations

TRAVERSE CITY — The Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau has just published the 2013 edition of its magazine and visitors' guide, "Traverse City." The free publication features 110 pages of articles, photos and information designed to bring the region to the attention of a wider national audience.

"Traverse City is a wonderful destination, but historically we haven't done a really good job of sharing it with the rest of the world," said Bureau president Brad Van Dommelen in a press release. "The most common thing we hear from first-time visitors is, 'I had no idea there was anything like this in this part of the country.'"

This past year, National Geographic named Traverse City one of its Top 10 Summer Trips for 2012, while the Travel Channel ranked it among the Top Seven Beer Destinations in North America, and Budget Travel called it one of the 11 "Coolest Winter Places in America." Money magazine has also named the region as one of the top places in the U.S. to retire.

Highlights of the annual magazine include a guide to finding the best local beaches, a tribute to the region's growing reputation as a sportfishing destination and a first-person story about a married couple's weekend getaway. The publication also contains a great deal of practical information to help visitors plan their vacations, including detailed schedules of activities and events, a lodging section describing the area's best hotels and resorts, a guide to some of the region's top restaurants and a section called "Traverse City Regions" that describes neighborhoods, enclaves and communities.

The entire magazine can be viewed online by visiting the Bureau's website at www.TraverseCity.com, where free copies can also be ordered.
