Celebrate New Year’s Eve in the splendor of Northern Michigan when you stay at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Beautiful blankets of crisp white snow and sparkling lights illuminate Traverse City and create the backdrop for this quiet, romantic getaway.
At Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, you’ll have countless options for how you want to ring in the new year.
First is a truly authentic Michigan experience with the Midnight in the Mitten party.
"The Midnight in the Mitten celebration honors decades of outstanding Michigan agriculture," says Mickey Cannon, director of food and beverage. "We will feature local wines, beers, and spirits alongside seasonal and eclectic dishes that appeal to folks of all different tastes."
Indulge in the eight-course dinner before dancing the night away with the Blue Water Kings Band. A champagne toast at midnight caps off an evening of food and fun.
For a more intimate setting, elevate to the scenic 16th floor of the resort’s Tower for a New Year’s Eve dinner celebration at Aerie Restaurant & Lounge. Offering bold and exciting flavors, Aerie provides a one-night-only menu with wine pairings from their award-winning wine list.
"Aerie is one of the most romantic places to be on New Year's Eve," says Alex Truck, restaurant manager and sommelier. "A bottle of wine, a view of the bay, and a delicious meal make the evening perfect for couples young and old."
Don’t forget about the on-site amenities at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa either. Their award-winning spa may be the perfect spot to unwind and pamper yourself to start off 2020 feeling refreshed and rejuvenated heading into the long months of winter. You will also be able to work on your golf game at the Golf Academy. Heated indoor-outdoor hitting bays are equipped with mirrors and motion-capture technology to analyze your swings.
Whether you are looking to celebrate in a festive setting or a more romantic one, you’ll have plenty of options. (Plus, there’s a kids-only party and licensed daycare for the little ones on site!) No matter how you ring in 2020, your New Year’s Eve experience will be unparalleled at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
