The shoreline from Leland to Frankfort is part of the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore Park. With 480-foot-tall sand dunes, white beaches, and forests, the scenery is stunning. In a recent Good Morning America search, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore earned the title of “the most beautiful place in America”.
We arrived in Frankfort a little after noon and all 6 of us walked downtown for lunch at Dinghys Restaurant. We then did a little shopping around town and went back to the boat for a relaxing afternoon.
In the evening we went to Betsie Bay Inn for dinner with Becky and Carlton. The inn is an historic Victorian Hotel that in earlier times featured an underground tunnel to Al Capone’s nearby home. The tunnel was supposedly used for part of his bootleg liquor business. The inn has recently been restored and features 17 unique rooms.
