Maple-City lies about midway between Lake Leelanau and Glen Lake in the northern region of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, just six miles south of Lake Michigan. This convenient location is right in the heart of one of Michigan's most popular tourist areas. Named for the huge amount of maple trees that grew in the area, Maple City is a quaint village that is typical of small Northern Michigan towns. The village itself consists of just a few stores and businesses and a post office, plus a picturesque old schoolhouse that has been carefully preserved and refurbished into a business complex. Maple City is the starting point for The Cedar Hilltopper's Snowmobile Trail, which is a state trail that runs to the city of Empire where it connects to other snowmobile trails in Benzie County. Other recreational activities near Maple City include fishing charters, golf, sailing and boating, canoeing, hiking and biking. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just a short drive west of Maple City and includes outstanding features such as giant dune formations, sandy beaches, forests and ancient glacial phenomena. Other attractions near Maple City include Michigan's Wine Country, the Manitou Islands and "Fishtown," a 100-year-old fishing village that lies within the city of Lake Leelanau.

Maple City Weather & Climate

The lake effect is quite strong on the northwest area of Lower Michigan near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. This area has a distinct four-season climate, although Lake Michigan helps modify temperatures, keeping them cooler in late spring and early summer, and warmer during late fall and winter. Showers and thunderstorms are common in spring and summer, and precipitation is generally evenly distributed during the crop season of April through September, receiving an average of 17.45 inches of rain during that time. The lake also acts as a giant humidifier, increasing moisture content in the air throughout the year. However, extremely hot and humid summer days are not that common and don't last long in this part of the state. Snowfall varies greatly from season to season.
