Leelanau Sands Casino offers more than just a Las Vegas-style experience. We’re located in one of the most beautiful locations on earth! Michigan casinos don’t get better than Leelanau Sands. Here are some of our favorite things about the casino and the surrounding area. 

    A Top Food-and-Drink Destination at Your Doorstep

    Leelanau Sands is located just miles from Traverse City, the Midwest’s number one foodie destination. Up and down Grand Traverse Bay, you can find wineries, breweries, distilleries and exquisite dining experiences. There’s absolutely no shortage of delicious eats and delightful drinks to experience. Trust us – you’ll be well fed before heading back to Leelanau Sands for the evening!

    Leelanau Sands is unique among casinos in Michigan, as we’re surrounded by some of the country’s best wineries. We’re located along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail, and wine lovers who stay at our casino delight in the variety and quality of wineries that are just a short drive (or walk, or bike) from our casino floors.

    A Northern Michigan Casino Surrounded by Beauty

    Known as a premier casino in northern Michigan, Leelanau Sands is the perfect vacation home base. We’re situated in an easy-to-access, central location, so you’ll be able to adventure out to the surrounding areas during the day, then gamble or rest in our homey Lodge during the evening. Michigan casinos with hotels are great, but none are better than those located in such a picturesque location.

    Just a few miles west of the casino, take in the breathtaking views of Sleeping Bear Dunes or be charmed by a visit to the Fishtown area of Leland. Want a more relaxed approach? Simply take in a view of the bay from your room or enjoy Big Dex’s Restaurant before heading down to the casino to play slots, bingo, blackjack or whatever table game your heart desires.

    Biking, Golfing, and More

    Leelanau Sands is happy to be a neighbor of the famous TART biking trail. It runs from Traverse City, up the Leelanau Peninsula to Suttons Bay – almost right to your front door at the casino. If you’re a biking enthusiast or you love a relaxing stroll, you’ll be in heaven.

    Our sister property, Turtle Creek Casino, is located right off east Grand Traverse Bay next to four of the best golf courses in all of Michigan, including the famously difficult, Jack Nicklaus-designed course, the Bear at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
