Description
The village of Leland, bordered by Lake Michigan to the west and Lake Leelanau to the east, is a popular departure point for lake cruises and fishing charters. Settled in 1853, Leland was named by the many sailors who used the harbor. On the harbor is Fishtown, a collection of shops, galleries and art studios in a rustic fishing village setting.
