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.
