GTR Earns Wine Spectator Honors

Grand Traverse Resort & Spa’s 16th-floor restaurant overlooks gorgeous sunsets and features one of the best aerial views in northern Michigan. Unless, that is, you’re lucky enough to view the Straits of Mackinac from atop the soaring Mackinac Bridge towers … but it’s sans food and beverage there.

The 2017 Governor’s Awards for Innovative Tourism Collaboration Selects Category Winners

Created by the Michigan Travel Commission in conjunction with the Governor’s Office, The Governor’s Awards for Innovative Tourism Collaboration elevate the status of Michigan’s tourism industry and promote innovative collaboration as an effective, efficient and creative operating principle for the industry. In April, at the Pure Michigan Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Detroit, Dave Lorenz of Travel Michigan, representing the Michigan Travel Commission, and Julie Pingston, representing the Tourism Industry Coalition of Michigan (TICOM), presented the 2017 awards.

Over and Out

Well, another fantastic Best of Michigan Awards party has come and gone. Every year, I think we’ve topped ourselves, though, really, each year’s celebration is wonderful in its unique way.

This year we took the party to Traverse City, a much-needed visit by the magazine’s readers and supporters to the region that has done so much to lure tourism to Michigan. The local meeting and events industry folks bent over backwards to make the experience exceptional. We spread out over two venues—the City Opera House and the Hotel Indigo—and enjoyed wonderful hospitality wherever we were.
