There is still plenty to do in the Traverse City area during your Christmas break and we offer you affordable Traverse City lodging while you enjoy these activities. There is still time to check out the Festival of Trains at the History Center of Traverse City. Mark and Savanna were there on Saturday to check out the interactive displays and hands-on model trains. A visit to the “cherry ‘pit pit” also proved to be a lot of fun. The display will be available through January 4, 2014. Go to www.traversehistory.org for more information.
The 4th annual Cherry T Ball Drop takes place in downtown Traverse City on New Years Eve. The festivities start at 9 pm with a live band, DJ and other activities. We offer lodging just seven miles from downtown Traverse City.
Our friends at Incredible Mo’s offers two different party options for New Year’s Eve–advanced reservations are required. Then they turn it over to the Teens on New Years Day. For just $15 your teen gets unlimited bowling, laser tag, laser maze, juke n box and cornhole from 8 pm to 11 pm. We are less than two miles from Incredible Mo’s.
It’s been a snowy winter so far. The snowmobile trails are looking good. We have plenty of parking and are close to the staging area at the Northwest Michigan Fairgrounds. Make the Traverse City Econo Lodge your Traverse City snowmobiling lodging choice. And for the skiers, we are the closest Traverse City hotel to Crystal Mountain.
