Elk Rapids and the Traverse City Michigan Area

There are so many great things happening in the Traverse City area - the wine festivals, beer festivals, film festival, the Horses By the Bay 6 week "show", comedy festival, etc. We also have great golf courses, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, boating -- we really have so much to offer here!

In 2011 the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was voted The Most Beautiful Place in America by ABC's Good Morning America. See Video below.

In 2010 Traverse City was voted 4th of the top 5 cities to retire in the entire country, and just received an award for one of the top downtown streetscapes in the country -- one of 3 in the state! It's such a beautiful area and such a great quality of life!
