Clinch Park, 111 E Grandview Pkwy, Traverse City, MI 49684
Why We Recommend
With 1500 feet of sandy frontage along West Grand Traverse Bay in downtown Traverse City, this is the area's most populated beach and probably the most popular, and for good reason. Clinch Park has picnic tables, bike racks, access to the TART Trail, lifeguards (mid-June -- August), a snack bar, rentals and restrooms. Adjacent to the Clinch Park Marina, this beach is just north of downtown, is easy and safe get to using the pedestrian tunnel at the north end of Cass Street that goes under the parkway.
