The Fishtown of Leland
The Leland River (a.k.a. Carp River) leads to the legendary fishing on Lake Michigan. For more than 100 years, Leland has been known for its commercial fishing, hence its nickname, Fishtown. In this quaint town, many of the buildings dating back to the 1800's were formally used as smoke houses or ice houses. A bunch of these old shanties have been turned into entertainment venues. This downtown area has been designated a historical site.
