The Sixth Annual New Year's Eve Ball Drop! The Northport Inn and The Gathering Place, in conjunction with Northport-Omena Chamber of Commerce present the Sixth Annual New Year's Eve Ball Drop, downtown Northport at the corner of Waukazoo and Nagonaba. Come early to enjoy dinner, drinks, and music at our local restaurants with live bands playing at Tucker's and Mitten Brewing!
Hike the trails north of Northport in the Leelanau State Park, take the stairs down the bluff at Peterson Park -- going down is the easy part -- or plan a bike ride to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse, the tip of the Little Finger. The lighthouse and museum is located in the Leelanau State Park and you can camp there too!
Summer is special in Northport and Omena... strawberry season, cherry season, the Farmers Market, the dog parade and the wine festival are just a few good reasons to spend your summer here.
The location of Northport and Omena, on Michigan's Little Finger, is second to none for scenic touring. Travel M-22 from Traverse City to Northport, then take M-201 into Northport and beyond. At the tip of the peninsula is the Leelanau State Park and the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum.
