Both Mickey and I agree of all the towns that we visited on this trip, our favorite was SuttonsBay. It is located midway up the eastern shore of the Leelanau Peninsula.
During the early 19th century [when its harbor was used as a port by schooners transporting lumber from the area to large towns in the Midwest], the population increased, and the town "blossomed."
I love the architecture of Suttons Bay, and most of the shoreline of Suttons Bay is park land for all to enjoy. There are trails to hike at Bahle Park. Nearby are wineries, golf courses, sport fishing, boating, downhill and cross country skiing, casino gambling, and two national parks.
What I loved most is that in this village, there are no fast food franchises, no parking meters, and no stoplights! Suttons Bay is such a charming and historical village. It doesn't hurt that it has such adorable specialty shops either!
