Nestled on a narrow sliver of land between Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau, Leland is a picturesque village in the heart of the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula.
Leland blends the heritage of a 140-year-old fishing village with the subtle sophistication of modern life. The striking natural beauty and easy, relaxed atmosphere has drawn artists, writers, heads of government and industry and countless others to the area and continues to be a powerful lure to those seeking something unique.
The village boasts excellent lodging, fine restaurants and a wide variety of shops, from historic Fishtown shanties to the clothing, book, and antique and gift shops along Main Street. Many shops and galleries feature works by local artists and treasures from around the world. Charter fishing trips and excursions to the Manitou islands are available in the fine Leland Harbor.
Nearby visitors can find farm markets, award-winning vineyards and wineries, golf courses, the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Leelanau’s other quaint villages.
