Northport is located near the tip of Leelanau County's Peninsula, overlooking Grand Traverse Bay near Lake Michigan. It is a picture-postcard town with a waterfront, marina, gift shops and art galleries, antiques shops and restaurants. The village of Northport has a beautiful harbor, and nearby Leelanau State Park is home to Grand Traverse Lighthouse and a museum, rustic campgrounds, and a picnic area with a shelter and playground. Things to do in the Northport area include camping, biking and hiking along the Lake Michigan shoreline, horseback riding, and touring the cherry and apple orchards in the hills that surround the town. Sailing, boating and fishing are also popular spots in Northport, which is the jumping off point for windjammer cruises in northern Lakes Michigan and Huron. And, also of interest is the Leelanau Conservancy's Kehl Lake Natural Area, which is a one hundred-acre preserve that includes approximately 1700 feet of the southwest shoreline of Kehl Lake. Lodging is plentiful in Northport, and includes beachfront rentals, a four-season resort, bed & breakfasts and hotels and motels.

Northport 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.
