Leland's historical district, known as Fishtown, features rustic shanties and docks reminiscent of life and commercial fishing one hundred years ago. Today, galleries and unique shops fill their walls, and charter fishing trips and the only public ferry to the popular Manitou Islands depart from those same docks. The adjacent full service marina is the perfect place for launching and mooring boats on Lake Michigan.
One of Leland's signature events is the annual Leland Wine and Food Festival held on the second Saturday each June. This festival features many of our region's exquisite award winning wines as well as outstanding food and hors d'oeuvres from local restaurants.
