Things to do

Culture and heritage near Northport

Northport is home to the Amy Alpaugh Studio, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1947. Unfortunately, this historic home is a private residence so can't be toured, but history buffs can get their fill at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse. Just a few miles north of Northport, the lighthouse dates back to 1852. Today, it is restored as the site of a small museum illuminating the life of a lighthouse keeper in the 1920s. If all that history works up a thirst, stop by one of the many local vineyards, wineries and breweries near your Northport vacation rental to enjoy a tasting of a delicious local vintage.


Fun by Northport's beautiful lakeshore

Keen sailors or anglers can choose a Northport vacation rental on the water's edge to make the most of the boating, sailing, paddling, birdwatching or fishing to be enjoyed here. Head to Northport's pretty little marina to charter a boat for the day, watch the yachts bobbing on the water, or take a stroll along the wooden boardwalk. As well as the local shops, galleries and restaurants, there are miles of trails to be enjoyed. Leelanau State Park has beaches, shaded trails and a historic lighthouse to explore. Or simply take a picnic to the beach and enjoy a family day out on the beautiful golden sands.


Northport through the seasons

With freezing winter temperatures and summer highs into the 70s, Northport enjoys very distinct seasons. Local events and seasonal festivals make the most of these different conditions. Springtime flowers and early sunshine make perfect conditions for walking, biking, fishing and boating. These activities extend into the summer and autumn months, with summer sunshine attracting live music events at local restaurants and wineries. Come winter, the temperatures drop, snow falls and the local trails are popular for skiing and snowshoeing.
