Don't miss the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City Michigan! We had an absolutely blast this year! Plus it's free! Get there early (by 9:30 a.m.) and you will have no problem parking in the parking structure downtown.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We sat on the beach and watched the beautiful boats, sampled the cherries at the Cherry Connection, enjoyed a gyro, wandered along the marina and explored the NASA exhibit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's plenty of shade trees to sit beneath as you enjoy your cherries, snacks and lunch from the numerous Cherry Festival vendors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cherries #traversecitytourism #traversecity #traversecitymi #traversecitymichigan #traversecitycherryfestival #cherryfestival #michiganfestivals #Michigan #puremichigan #michigantravel #greatlakesstate #michiganstate #travelingmichigan #michiganoverboard #michigan_wanderlust #greatlakesstateofmind #puremittenpride #lovemichigan #michiganders #exploremichigan #greatlakesstate #greatlakesstateofmind #greatlakeslocals #midwestmoment #michiganders #onlyinmichigan #michiganunsalted #puremichiganders
