Beaches A day at the beach is even sweeter when you’re within walking distance of supplies. A great beach read, shovel and pail and ice cream cones are all an easy stroll from these in-town beach beauties. 2. 1. 3. 1. Suttons Bay too chilly to dive into, cross the parking lot to the small inland (and warmer) South Bar Lake. Follow signs from downtown. is found just past where the main road makes a sharp curve. Walk to pick up provisions at the old-timey general store. You feel away from it all, yet you are steps from waterfront dining and wine tasting. Sailboats often dock in the harbor, adding romance to your view. Off M-22 in Omena. Those who like to gradually enter the water will love Suttons Bay’s marina beach, a favorite for families and those just looking to float in the particularly warm shallows. A playground, tables and grills make it easy to stay through dinner. Better yet, walk to one of the local pubs noted for gourmet burgers and a casual vibe. 231.271.6703. Lake Leelanau 2. Glen Arbor/Glen Haven Historic Glen Haven offers a full vacation in a single stop, starting with a beach you can’t beat anywhere in the Great Lakes—at least according to Florida professor Stephen Leatherman, a k a “Dr. Beach.” He ranked it at the top for coastal dunes, fine sand and view of the Manitou Islands. On-site museum and old-fashioned general store add to the fun. From Glen Arbor, 2 miles west on M-109. Pick up a take-out picnic at NJ’s Grocery (the fresh-made samosas, perhaps) and head to this road-end local favorite beach. It’s a good spot for dropping in a line or launching a kayak, and then paddling the wildlife-filled channel connecting the north and south branches of Lake Leelanau. Head west from town on M-204 about a mile, right on Popp Rd. Northport Leland 3. Empire ANGELA BROWN Enchanting dune bluffs rise to the north and south of this wide swath of sandy beach, making it one of the area’s most popular. The amenities don’t hurt either. A restroom, playground, picnic tables and grills help families out. When the big lake’s North Beach is a favorite for those who like to walk for miles, stopping along the soft sand path to collect a Petoskey stone or locally prized Leland Blue. (Stay along the water line to avoid trespassing.) Find books, picnic fare and sand toys in downtown Leland. Take North Street west toward the lake, and then follow a short trail to the beach. Haserot Park, Northport’s municipal beach, is located right downtown. The grassy park offers room for the kids to run, and it’s also a favorite for festivals celebrating wine or the classic fish boil. Your view is of the sparkling waters of Grand Traverse Bay beyond the marina. Walk the pier and gaze at the boats after a picnic and swim. Elmwood Township Omena As close as an in-town beach can come to being a secret cove, this hidden gem The nautical theme of the new play area is fitting on this beach alongside the Elmwood Township Marina. Picnic with the gang under the large shelters while the kids swing, whirl and slide on the creations of TV-show carpenter Carter Oosterhouse, a Traverse City native who has built more than 20 playgrounds through his Carter’s Kids charity. On M-22, just north of the M-72 intersection.

SLEEPING BEAR DUNES NAtiONAL LAkEShORE When Leelanau County locals want to show off their region, they bring guests first to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, most often starting at the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, which weaves through the dunes. A one-time logger, Pierce Stocking used to walk the spectacular bluffs and wanted to share the beauty with others. He envisioned a clever route that let the geographic drama gradually unfold. A pull-off early in the route offers a distant peek of the ethereal blues of the Glen Lakes; another pull-off delivers views of an undulating dunescape with towering ridges. But we’re betting it was at the Lake Michigan overlook where Good Morning America viewers cemented their decision to name this park the Most Beautiful Place in America. Here, the dunes drop 450 feet steeply down into glittering Lake Michigan, and all the cameras come out—though few can capture the top-of-the-world feel. Marvel at the tiny specks of people on the beach below, then work your climbing muscles at the Dune Climb—the main attraction for kids (of all ages) who love scaling its heights, then tumbling back down the soft sand. The park’s beauty and fun unfold elsewhere, too, in ways both subtle and spectacular. Follow hiking trails to pinnacle overlooks— Empire Bluffs and Pyramid Point among the favorites. Canoe or kayak through the park on the gorgeous Platte or Crystal Rivers. Or travel back in time with a stop at Glen Haven, a tiny preserved town of museums and an old-time general store, adjacent to the beach recently named most beautiful on the Great Lakes. Fit it all in by setting up camp at popular D.H. Day Campground on the mainland, or escape to one of the rustic hike-in campsites on North or South Manitou Islands. To visit the islands, buy ferry passage from Manitou Island Transit at the Fishtown Pier in Leland and map your daytime or overnight adventure: climb a lighthouse tower, hike to a shipwreck that pokes above the waves, wander the beach for hours.

Far Fetched/ Northwest Charters partners with both The Riverside Inn and Restaurant and The Cove, where one favorite preparation is foil-wrapped and baked with peppers and onions (231.941.4375, far-fetched.com); Fishtown Charter Service (231.256.9639, fishtowncharters.com) partners with The Cove.

Spot them (from a distance)—and find blissful solitude—at secluded Cathead Bay, reached by a ¾-mile walk from the parking lot, over forested dunes nearly as enchanting as the sandy cove beach.

The newly completed Leelanau Trail now stretches 15.5 miles from Suttons Bay to Traverse City, through rolling hills and flower-filled meadows, over converted railroad bridges and past orchards and vineyards.

Tickets at MyNorthTickets.com. Climb a dune Kids Port Oneida Fair, August 9–10 A bygone way of life comes alive at the Port Oneida fair in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Check out farm animals, demonstrations of native crafts, children’s activities, folk music and more. The mountain of sand aptly called the “Dune Climb,” within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, can look a bit daunting at first, but seeing the joy of toddlers, teens and grownups alike as they sprint back down makes the huffing and puffing of the ascent worthwhile. Follow the tradition among campers at nearby Interlochen Arts Academy, who earn the moniker “dune goon” by climbing to the top and rolling or tumbling to the bottom at least twice. Picnic tables, restrooms and water fountains wait at the bottom of the sand mountain. Rest at the top long enough to take in the stunning panorama of the Glen Lakes below. (NPS.GOV/SLBE) Empire Asparagus Festival, May 17–18 Festival-goers often don costumes of giant asparagus stalks, and there’s a poetry contest featuring the most moving asparagus odes. Those activities and the creative way that asparagus is worked into croissants, chocolates and ale prompted MSN.com to deem this one of the world’s weirdest festivals. Festivals, fairs and more! Find your ticket to fun at Unleash the creativity Let the natural landscape that has inspired countless artists spark your own family creations, at children and family programs offered all summer at The Old Art Building and Community Cultural Center in Leland (OLDARTBUILDING.COM), or in Glen Arbor, where the Glen Arbor Art Association (GLENARBORART. ORG) offers art classes for kids and adults. Drop-in classes at Glen Arbor’s Smock Paper Scissors lets imaginations soar. Education that feels like fun Kids will never know they’re visiting a museum, not at historic Glen Haven, where marine history is taught through a historically accurate surf rescue (of a doll), a blacksmith who forges tools from molten iron, and an old-time general store stocked with vintage candy (NPS.GOV/SLBE). In Suttons Bay’s Inland Seas Education Center, the popular touch tank and Zebra Bike exhibits, or the chance to look up-close at critters like Spiny Water Fleas, offer a fun, hands-on way to learn about Great Lakes invasive species. Watch underwater life and diving birds through the under-dock camera that sends images into the building. (SCHOOLSHIP.ORG).
