Traverse City Area Events

HAPPY NEW YEARS! It’s January in the Northwest Michigan territory and as we wonder what’s happening with the snow, the holiday season come and gone.  The ski slopes are open and praying to keep their snow! (You can find the slopes here: https://tcre.today/NorthwestMISkiSlopes and see their status here: https://tcre.today/NorthwestMISkiReport) Check out this Event Highlights for January to see some of the fun things you can do during the winter in Northwest Michigan.  

These events are the highlights from the Ticker, EventBright, PureMichigan, and Meetup.  There is not a rhyme or reason to them and it is worth a full peruse.  

If you are planning a venture and like the option of an investment or vacation home, give me a call, and we can begin this discussion.
