4 and 5.
Suttons Bay Chamber of
Commerce President Karen Pontius touts the year-round, lakeshore village’s amenities, convenience and location.
“We are the  rst village you come to as you are driving out of Traverse City up M22,” Pontius said. “(It’s) centrally located so
if someone stays here, they can go (most places) in the county in about 15 minutes.”
Suttons Bay — the bay itself, that is — also competes among the county’s best beaches. Marina Park provides an
ideal spot for a family day in
the sun, and public shoreline opportunities extend from North Park at the end of M-204 to South Beach.
“People don’t realize we have a great beach here,” Pontius
said. “A lot of times, people come here to stay and don’t have to drive anywhere. And everything is within walking distance, whether it’s the beach, bike, paddleboard or kayak rentals, restaurants. Everything is here.”
While driving isn’t necessary, you may want to hop in the car and head to Herman Park for a game of pickleball, hunt for rocks at Vick Steimel Park on the Stony Peninsula, or explore Bahle Park. Those in search of hiking, biking, running or strolling opportunities can head to TART trail that runs through of town.
If you’re here in July, plan to attend the 18th Annual Tour de TART bicycle tour for a 16-mile ride that includes two food stops, a waterfront dinner at the marina and a bus ride back to the starting point in Greilickville.
If you’d rather be on water than land, check out Inland Seas Education Association at the south end of the marina. There, you’ll  nd two tall ships where you can set sail for a cruise across the gorgeous blue waters
