Welcome to the Glen Lake area, home to Big and Little Glen Lakes, including the quaint areas of Glen Arbor, Empire, Burdickville, and the Narrows, located amidst the The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

Explore the Natural Beauty of the area Year Round!

Shop & Dine at the businesses open in the off-season, and join us for great community events. Play and Stay in Glen Arbor, then set out for your tour around the Leelanau Peninsula on M-22, and don’t miss the Wine Trails! Although our busiest season, Summer, has passed…there’s plenty to do and explore. The Glen Lake area is a perfect outdoor getaway.

Step away from the hustle and get refreshed in the beauty around Glen Arbor. Find a new trail to hike, a new view from a hilltop, find a store’s sale, try a new item on the menu, find something seasonal to drink, get a new book to read, buy a piece of art. Meet a friend, find a new friend! Drive around, hike around, bike around, and take in the smell of fresh air and fallen leaves on the ground.

Whether you seek pristine beaches, hiking, biking, water sports, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, superb art & music, majestic sunsets, museums, unique shopping, great food, fine wines, antiques or just an overall perfect place for a vacation get-away, our area offers something for everyone. Plan your next visit soon!
