USA Today names Northern Michigan's Leland #2 best sunset, listing Fishtown, Lake Leelanau and Lake Michigan part of its charm. You knew it, we knew it, so go ahead and pat your trendsetting-back as the rest of the world catches up.
Our little gem of Leelanau County beat out some pretty notable vacation spots in the top ten list, including Panama City Beach, Tucson and Key West. So who made the #1 spot? 'Twas Clearwater Beach, Florida. (We have to laugh...probably a lot of Leland folks living in Clearwater, too, November through May.)
Here's what USA Today had to say about Leland's sunset scenes:
"The charming village of Leland, on the Leelanau Peninsula between Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau, is one of the great scenic places in America to enjoy lake life and all its perks, including nightly sunset. The setting is rustic in a way that only an historic fishing village can be. Nature lovers watch the sun set over Lake Michigan for a postcard-perfect experience."
