The Many Ways to Independently Navigate the City
We built this place to be a pedestrian safe city.
Downtown Traverse City is Pedestrian-Friendly
If you are traveling the city by foot, travelers will appreciate our walk-friendly features. Benches and bump outs are in place to give visitors a rest and water fountains are available to wet your whistle when you are parched. Signage alerts drivers of pedestrian cross walks to keep those on foot safe. We also have a number of recycling and waste stations within Downtown Traverse City to promote keeping the city clean for everyone!
Wheelchair Friendly (ADA Compliant)
We are dedicated to making sure our friends that are wheeling around town have access to the same experiences as those on foot. The city's ordinances which we strictly follow require sidewalk clearance for wheelchairs. There is easy passage to your destination of choice even in areas in which al fresco dining is in season.
Biking is encouraged in Downtown Traverse City! Bikers can enjoy bike lanes and a large variety of bike racks all throughout town.
