“What a great small town to walk around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

On the water, great variety of little shops, just enough choices on dining to suit all tastes and you can bike to and from SB to TC.

“Nice little town, must park the car and wander around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

It isn't Detroit Grand Rapids or even Muskegon. It is laid back, it has touristy feels to it and it should. This is a sleepy little town in the "pinky" of Michigan, and close to a lot of great places to visit. Stop and say hi while on your circle tour and find out Sutton's Bay has a lot to offer you. WIthin striking distance of Northport(the tip of the pinky) and Peterson Park(awesome sunset views),Leland and it's little "fishtown" or Traverse City(I reccomend the Moomer's ice cream and a visit to The Commons:a re-use of the old State Hospital.

“Picturesque town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Picturesque town and harbor on a turquoise bay. People were friendly. Wish the Suttons Bay stores offered more merchandise and gift items made in Michigan or USA.
