Nothing in the world is a beautiful as norther MI in the summer/Fall. Incredible views and color. Suttons Bay is a must on the circle tour and is so wonderful. A must for anybody who is visiting Mi.

Suttons Bay is your typical, little up-north town with unique gift shops and restaurants. Allow an hour to walk and browse, before heading to the next winery on the trail.

Great place to take a walk down the main street and visit the many small shoppes. Nice little restaurants to have a meal.

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.
