Despise Them Not

lodging + food

We do not have a specific hotel booked for the conference, but you can find beautiful accommodations throughout the Grand Traverse Area.  There are stunning hotels, as well as Inns, Bed and Breakfasts, and a large selection of homes on AirBnB and VRBO, as well as camping in one of our breathtaking parks.  We HIGHLY recommend booking your accommodations early, as the summer months tend to fill up quickly.  If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us.

 

When it comes to food, Traverse City is know world wide for their unique local fare,  niche restaurants and wineries.  Visit our fleet of food trucks for a memorable (and quick) meal, or take your time and dine in a cafe or restaurant near the Bay.
