Native Americans christened the peninsula jutting off the northwest Michigan mainland Leelanau. Locals will delight in sharing this definition with you, as well as the fact that they get to live here year-round. With 98 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, 30 miles of inland lakes and rivers, and a half-dozen hamlets that ooze with history, ethnicity, sophisticated shops, local artwork, and outstanding restaurants, this wedge of hills and valleys does have much to recommend it. You'll hit many of the highlights on the Leelanau North Cruise. Optional spurs will allow you to extend your ride to visit a winery tasting room and a lighthouse. The land of delight can be described in three words: water, fruit, and tourism. Like the Old Mission Peninsula to the east, Leelanau's geographic situation creates a unique climate ideal for fruit growing.
