Fishtown may not sound romantic or the place to be, but that's what keeps bringing tourists to Leland. Perched on the banks of the Carp River, between Lakes Michigan and Leelanau, weather-beaten gray shanties used to hold fishing gear. Now most of these turn-of-the-century buildings house businesses, and fishnets hang out here along with the tourists from Chicago and Detroit. You'll pass the Historic District of Fishtown, where you can purchase delicious smoked whitefish or charter a boat, on the way to Pearl Street, at the end of the ride. This trip also features a shore-hugging loop around the northern section of Lake Leelanau, passing through the town of Lake Leelanau and offering easy pedaling on mostly flat roads. Things to see: Lake Leelanau and picturesque town of Leland.
