These days it’s hard to imagine, but there was a time when life was simpler and families looked forward to summer vacation as a chance to spend quality time together. Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, located along the shores of Lake Michigan’s Grand Traverse Bay, boasts a summer lake resort atmosphere where wholesome family fun and beautiful scenery are sure to help families reconnect.
Whether canoeing on local rivers, swimming at the Resort’s Beach Club, visiting a nearby orchard or farm to pick fruit, savoring s’mores at the evening bonfire, or fishing at a local hotspot, children are sure to discover that television and text messaging are overrated.
Named one of the nation’s best family resorts, Grand Traverse Resort & Spa has over $ 12 million in recent property-wide renovations and offers cherry-inspired spa services for mom and teen daughters, three championship golf courses for dad, and fun-filled water sports for kids of all ages. The resort also has programs for younger children to enjoy crafts, games and story time, while older children participate in exciting day camp experiences.
Add to the mix galleries for shopping and fine dining and families have just about everything wanted.
