Old Mission

We've never been to Traverse City. I noticed on the map, the small peninsula in the middle of Grand Traverse Bay. What is your opinion of the drive through the peninsula (Mapleton to Old Mission)? Are there sites that warrant the time? Suggestions for restaurants?

Old Mission Peninsula is my favorite area in Traverse City. Its a lovely drive past orchards abd wineries with tasting tours. The old general store is a fun stop and the lighthouse at the tip is very pretty. If you like wine and scenic drives, its a must.

I agree with Bluebygrace. I never been all the way to Mission Point but around the half way mark twice. It certainly makes for a scenic drive. On the link it shows the best bike route. Pretend your on a bike and drive that route instead. :-)

Hello! Yes, it's definitely worth it. There's so much to see and do on the peninsula. Here's a link to a blog post with information (scroll down to the section about Old Mission Peninsula).
