why tc?

one oak bride is putting down roots in traverse city, our hometown and favorite place on earth. someone not from the mitten may ponder why we're setting up shop in northern michigan. so, what makes this place so special? 

one oak stems from the semi-acronym "one of a kind" and we truly believe that reflects our area. for instance, the unsalted and pristine beauty from the surrounding great and inland lakes, rivers, and sand dunes; the rolling hills of farmland, orchards, and vineyards; the vibrant city center that is downtown traverse city and host to the traverse city film festival, the national cherry festival, and countless other festivities; and a seemingly endless supply of paved or groomed trails for skiing, biking and hiking.

on top of all the fun things to do and breathtaking vistas to behold, this town knows how to party. wineries, distilleries, taprooms, and microbreweries are hubs for the community to gather, talk trash on behalf of 'the team' (interchangeably MSU or UofM, depending on who you're talking to), listen to great local musicians, and, yes, have an unabashed good time.

and we didn't even mention the food scene. before we continue on this gush-train, we'll just tell you that bon appetit named us top 5 foodie towns in america.

and then we'll leave you with this link, so you know we aren't making this shit up. we really are the best city in the world.
