Nestled on the shoreline of Lake Michigan and edged by the Crystal River and two brilliantly blue inland lakes, Glen Arbor is a trendy and sophisticated small Northern Michigan town with year round appeal.
Check in to The Homestead, a luxurious sprawl of a resort with downhill ski lifts, cross country ski trails, a wide Lake Michigan beach and pool plus gourmet dining and a spa for pampering.
Rent a boat, jet ski, pontoon or speed boat from On the Narrow Marina and go for a cruise or cast a line in Glen Lake.
Paddle a kayak or canoe at Crystal River Outfitters. Do a short trip or paddle all the way to Lake Michigan through Sleeping Bear Dunes.
Stock up on your cherry supplies (Northern Michigan is, after all, cherry central) such as pies, bread, the diet busting Cherry Boomchunka Cookies, cherry soda, cherry sangria and about 50 or so more products at Cherry Republic — the ultimate in go to places for all things cherry.
Stop for coffee at the Leelanau Coffee Roasters Company where the beans are roasted on site each morning — if you like it that much you can join their Mud of the Month Club and have it sent to your home.
Eat outside on the patio overlooking the Crystal River at Riverfront Pizza & Specialties.
Visit Glen Arbor Botanicals for European and American lithographs and watercolors.
