8. Lots to do in Traverse!
I am fortunate enough to live here. My RL friend Deb (who lives in county next door and comes here often, Hi Deb! :hi: ) has already listed some of the great features of the area in post above mine. Lots of things to do listed in the local paper every week. Best time to come is of course the summer for a Californian. ;-) Though fall is breathtakingly beautiful. Wineries on two peninsulas, gorgeous views, delicious wine, you can't beat it. Cherry orchards in the spring, you should see it! There's a few spots on Old Mission Peninsula that are high up and a slight slope to either side. Down the slopes is a wall of cherry blossoms leading to the beautiful blue bay on either side. Go up to the Top of the Park in the downtown Park Place Hotel and take a look any time of the year. Surrounded by the very quaint and busy downtown with the bay as a backdrop and a lush green peninsula.

Good schools, low crime, lots of festivals and excuses to have fun....

If your friend is interested in getting involved in the local Dems BTW, let me know. ;-)
