Traverse City, Michigan is known as the Cherry Capital of the World and with the surrounding areas it is the largest producer of tart cherries in the United States! The city thrives on cherries and if you go during cherry season ( July - Early August), you will see rows and rows of cherry trees on the peninsula.
