Curated Day Trip: Sip and Savor the Old Mission Peninsula (Adults)

THIS TRIP IS SOLD OUT!

Sip and Savor the Old Mission Peninsula (Adults)

Come explore the rich history, cherry orchards, world-class wineries, and fine dining of Old Mission Peninsula. Begin your journey with a self-guided tour of the Mission Point Lighthouse Park. While it no longer guides mariners through West Grand Traverse Bay, Mission Point Lighthouse offers visitors a peek into what life was like around the turn of the 20th century for lighthouse keepers and others who lived and worked in the area at the time. Next, visit a local orchard and learn more about cherries – a Northern Michigan icon. Following the tour, enjoy a private three-course luncheon at the Boathouse Restaurant, nestled on the shores of Bowers Harbor. After lunch, we’ll end the day by exploring the history of viticulture on the peninsula with a winery tour and tasting at Chateau Chantal, a 75-acre estate with world-class wine and hospitality, before returning to Meijer Gardens with a box dinner on the road.

Entrance to the Old Mission Lighthouse Park, cherry experience, private three-course luncheon at Boathouse, winery tour and wine tasting at Chateau Chantal, box dinner, and all gratuities are included in the cost of registration. Expect a fair amount of walking, standing and stairs.
