Old Mission Tour

Directions

Driving on US 31 in Traverse City turn North on Peninsula Drive (old mission peninsula). Peninsula drive is an out and back to the light house at the end of the peninsula.

Scenery  

Splitting East and West bay's of lake Michigan this ride is 20 miles to the light house and beach at the end. Along the trip you will see crystal blue water on both sides. Beautiful homes on bluffs. Quaint stores and tons of wineries and vineyards. Of course being the cherry capital of the world if your there in May you will also get to see thousands of acres of cherry trees in bloom.

Road Quality  

The road is a great mix of flat, hills and corners. For the cruzer it is relaxing. For the sport bike rider you have some nice back to backs to navigate.

Roadside Amenities  

Wineries wineries and more wineries. Oh yeah and the beaches are pretty nice too.

Old Mission Point LightHouse

Mission Point Lighthouse has been a Traverse City and Old Mission Peninsula icon for decades. Located at the end of a picturesque drive along M-37 through cherry orchards and vineyards, Mission Point Lighthouse stands as a classic piece of Michigan history. While it no longer guides mariners through West Grand Traverse Bay as it did from September 10, 1870 until it was decommissioned in 1933, Mission Point Lighthouse now offers visitors a peek into what life was like around the turn of the century for lighthouse keepers and for others who lived and worked in the area at the time.

Lighthouse Park guests are invited to enjoy self-guided historical tours through the Lighthouse (climb all the way up to the tower!), to visit our quaint gift shop, to peek into the historic Hessler Log Cabin, to explore the miles of unspoiled trails that run through and around the park (many of which are just as historic as the Lighthouse itself), to picnic, to photograph, to watch for birds and other wildlife, to stroll the beach, to gaze out at the sunset, and to simply relax. We hope to see you there!
