We here in Michigan know how awesome Traverse City is, but now more people are hearing it thanks to a list that was released by TripAdvisor.

The list names "America's Top 50 Summer Hot Spots", and Traverse City ranks 12th on the list!

Now, keep in mind that TripAdvisor determined this list solely on the numbers. There findings are based on the greatest increase in seasonal hotel booking interest, including the average one-week vacation costs for hotels and airfare.

TripAdvisor says that the average summer nightly hotel rate in Traverse City is $262 per night, and that the least expensive summer week to visit is right around the corner - June 5 - June 11.
