Sutton Bay has everything places to eat, drink and of course the view of the water is wonderful but the homes by the water is outstanding! Unique stores and sights.

Shopping heaven. Stores are original and some feature local crafts and food. Love Bahles and the Front Porch (kitchen and home goods). Worth a trip up from a Traverse City.

Just the drive up there is half the fun. It's beautiful, cute, little, artsy town. (Downside: the public restroom was never open, so the only place to use is the Public Library--when it's open!)

We had a wonderful time, such a great downtown with fantastic shops! Make sure and check the alley spaces too they have things tucked in them and you won't want to miss a thing.Being near the water is always a good thing. Really nice way to spend a day. Loved it.

Very rude older women working at upscale clothing store! She clearly has lost her ability to discern which customers are there to spend and would do well to brush up on her manners.

Nice shops and restaurants right on the lake. We rode our bikes through the town at the end of the TART trail and stopped for lunch. Also a great place for ice cream!

Biked the Bike Trail. Loved the trail. Tree covered and flat. The town of Sutton's Bay was very nice. Trail had Porto Potties and facilities also available at the Vistitor's Center.

Suttons Bay is one of those quaint little towns on the Leelanau peninsula. It has a great little municipal marina right down town, several cute shops to visit and don't forget to go to Boones Prime Time pub, the original Boones!
