Ciccone Vineyard and Winery

Leland is a small village on the west coast of Leelanau County, and Fishtown is its historic fishing district. You'll find weathered fishing shanties, smokehouses, overhanging docks, fish tugs and charter boats along the Leland River. Once the heart of a commercial fishing village, the structures and docks are real places where people can walk through, see and feel a connection to Lake Michigan’s fishing heritage.
9 Bean Rows Farmstead
9 Bean Rows is an award-winning restaurant and bakery, which sources many of its ingredients and produce from its own beautiful farmstead, located between Suttons Bay and Lake Leelanau. Visit website.
