Here’s a surefire way to plan an activity that is fun and rewarding for the whole family: Build a fairy house! In this free eBook we provide you with all you need to know about building a fairy house with your children. We learned a lot about fairy houses (more than we ever thought possible!) while working on the development of Traverse City’s Fairy Trails, and we wanted to share some of that knowledge with our readers and their families. As an added bonus, we included some unique craft ideas to enhance the fairy house building fun.


Field Guides

One of the best things about Traverse City and its surrounding areas is the extensive range of options of places to visit, places to eat, places to hike, bike, play, stay…the opportunities are endless. But with so many options available, and only limited time to explore, it’s sometimes difficult to make a choice about where to go or what to do in order to experience the best moments that Traverse City has to offer. 

Our Field Guides bring you the best of Traverse City and the broader northern Michigan region. From popular spots to hidden gems, our dynamic Field Guides take the guesswork out of planning a Traverse City vacation, a date night out with your spouse, a vineyard tour, or a beach day with your kids, to name just a few examples. We love bringing our readers the best of Traverse City!
