Here are some of the pictures of this beautiful area of the country. We stayed in Leland (with my BFF from Junior High School and her husband!) on the Leland River leading out to Lake Leelanau. A 5 minute walk away, and we were in Historic Fishtown looking out at Lake Michigan. We followed Route M22 from Traverse City up the peninsula to Northport. We drove through adorable Glen Arbor and walked the meadow overlooking Lake Michigan at Empire and on to Sleeping Bear Dunes Park–a beautiful spot!
Hope you can visit sometime in the future. You can fly directly into the airport in Traverse City–a very nice airport with no crowds! You will not be sorry.
For my next travel post, I will be getting ready for our upcoming Cruise and Land vacation from Venice to Dubai. I will share how I am planning and packing for the trip; this will be a 20-day trip, so lots of packing challenges!
