If you're looking for "that" one place everyone is talking about look no further! This place has a world class views set over a cascading sand dunes! Enjoy the turquoise waters set atop of a massive sand dune and enjoy life! Pro tip... to escape crowds; do the trail hike to the right that takes you over rolling hills and gives views over hidden inland lakes! It should be noted that if you do plan on going down the bluff face you better be in good shape and ready for at least a 45 min adventure back up. This place will have you saying "It's a beaut Clark" -Cousin Eddie

One of Northport most known beautiful places to get that Lake Michigan vista we all want to see. Its set on top of clay cliffs just a few miles from my house. Great for catching world class sunsets over the Manitou & Fox Islands in Lake Michigan. Best part is its accessible to everyone and includes a lookout deck. Also you can go down the stairs to search for Petoskey stones (Google it).

Well Northport wouldn't be much without our own Port. Great for a stroll to look at boats and the crystal clear waters off the break wall. It also has a wonderful park that has music out of the gazebo every Friday in the Summer months! Also has the Main Beach of Northport on the south end.

This is what the locals call "Gull" Island. At one point it had 3 million Sea Gulls living on it in the 50's. Its about 3 miles off the Marina by boat. If you plan on renting a boat (can rent from North Shore Outfitters) on your trip its worth a look! Its owned by the Leelanau Conservancy; I helped them put up the sign on the island a few years ago. Its a bird sanctuary now. Pro Tip: stay up wind as the smell from all the gulls can be overwhelming.
