NORTHPORT This is THE place to enjoy a gorgeous sunset. Go out just before sunset and make sure to stay until after the sun goes down to enjoy the "bounce". The park sits up on a bluff. Go during the day, go down the 100+ steps to Lake Michigan for the best rock collecting around. Bring a bucket to collect your finds! Playground equipment for the kids; barbeque grilles.

EMPIRE No trip to Leelanau is complete without a trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes in Empire Michigan (the southwest corner of the peninsula and a good one hour drive from Northport). Start first at the Orientation Center and watch the film and get maps. Then to Pierce Stocking Drive where you will drive a loop with a number of sight seeing stops. Then onto the Dune Climb. After all that you deserve some ice cream or cherry pie (or both) at the Cherry Republic in Glen Arbor. You deserve it
