You get the idea. We’ve got some favorite things and favorite spots right here in Traverse City that we’d like to share with you!
At Traverse City Wine and Beer Tours, we are supporters of everything LOCAL and love the community we get to show off to our clients. Take a peek below at some of our favorite spots from the Traverse City area – they might just inspire your next visit, and make your list of “favorite things”.
Potter’s Bakery, 8th Street, TC
Does one really need a reason to have a fav bakery? Donuts, cookies, cakes, muffins, pies, oh my! Our favorite sweet is the “Chicken leg” a cream-filled donut dusted with sweet coconut, shaped like a chicken leg.
Mammoth Distillery, Warehouse District, Downtown TC
Eclectic + traditional craft cocktails, and delicious small-batch spirits, with a cozy atmosphere. Try the “honey bee” – a gin cocktail featuring honey simple syrup + lemon. A truly refreshing elixir!
FAVORITE WINERIES (and most popular with our tours)
Bonobo Winery, Old Mission Peninsula
Rove Estate Winery, Leelanau Peninsula
Bowers Harbor Vineyards, Old Mission Peninsula
Just like a parent – we aren’t supposed to choose favorites, but if we had to pick three wineries we love in the office, these would be it. Great wines, great views, and great spaces to enjoy!

Tasty + innovative brews, comfortable atmospheres, and space to move around!
