Northport, Michigan is an incredibly picturesque little town. Overlooking Lake Michigan’s Grand Traverse Bay, the town is surrounded by translucent azure waters that provide the perfect place for swimming, fishing and water sports.
One of the best things to do in Northport is to take a short trip out to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore -- a spot that was voted as being the “most beautiful place in the USA” according to Good Morning America. Here, visitors can embark on a number of water-related activities, or simply practice mindfulness on the shores of the lake as they revel in the view. Exploring Northport is an experience in itself. The town is right on the waterbank and has a selection of homely eateries, unique boutiques stores and art galleries for all to enjoy.
Northport can be visited all year around, though the best time to visit Northport to enjoy water sports is during the summer months when the temperatures are at their highest.
