Get Outdoors Week - Grand Traverse Resort and Spa on Live in the D

The weather is getting nicer, so why not get outdoors in a “grand” setting?

The experts at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa shared with us three ways to best enjoy the fresh air in Grand Traverse.

1) Get active

Whether you love hitting the courts and playing tennis or leisurely making your way across the golf course, playing a sport is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors. The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa hosts nine tennis courts and three different golf courses, including one called “The Bear,” which is a Jack Nicklaus golf course that’s ranked the 18th most difficult in the country.

2) Enjoy the view while dining

After playing a round of golf, kick back and relax at a restaurant overlooking the course. The Grille offers patio dining so you can enjoy the great outdoors and a good meal all at the same time.

3) Take a walk

Whether you want to traverse some of the 900-acre resort, or you want to take a quick trip to downtown Traverse City and see all the shops, getting outdoors and stretching your legs is a great way to spend an afternoon.
