Fishtown

Historic Site in Leland

Image by Trisha Ping Lonely Planet

In the early 1900s, tiny commercial fishing villages dotted the shorelines of the Great Lakes. Fishtown is one of the few that has been preserved. Wander among the shanties and see fish being cleaned and smoked, and pick up samples to try at Carlson's Fishery (the fish sausage will surprise you). Summer weekends draw crowds.
