Grand Traverse Resort and Spa: Enjoy massages, facials, manicures, and more. The resort also offers amenities like a pool, hot tub, and fitness center, ensuring a day of ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation.

8. Explore the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

For adventurous groups, a trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a must. Hike the scenic trails, climb the towering dunes, and enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. It's an exhilarating experience that combines natural beauty with outdoor fun.

9. Let the Luck Come in at a Casino

Two casinos can be found in the area. Both have their appeal, but if you are looking for a party scene, I would suggest Turtle Creek Casino just East of Traverse City. Leelanau Sands Casino is smaller and quieter and a bit further of a drive from Traverse City. A great scenic drive up the coast of Leelanau Peninsula makes this part of a great day trip for a group looking for some luck, beautiful views, and charming villages such as Suttons Bay.

10. Relax & Craft

If your group is looking for a more laid-back activity, might I suggest an artsy activity.

Board & Brush: DIY wood sign and wood project workshops. Spend some time letting your hair down, and chatting with your party members all while letting your artistic you show. ?

Handz on Art: Reservations are required for 6 or more in your party, but walk-ins are welcomed while open. A fun studio where you choose your pottery to paint and then channel the artist in you!


Traverse City has something for every type of bridal party coming up here for some fun. From a fun nightlife and party scene to small, unique shopping boutiques to quiet dinners or lively culinary experiences and many artistic and adventurous endeavors in between.
