Empire is a village in Leelanau County in the U.S. Take a break from the city and head to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Old Indian Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Manitou Passage Golf Club and South Manitou Island Lighthouse. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Empire: Good Harbor Vineyards (in Lake Leelanau) and Bel Lago Winery (in Cedar). And it doesn't end there: cruise along Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, look for gifts at Cherry Republic of Glen Arbor, enjoy the sand and surf at Lake Michigan Beach Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Empire Bluff Trail.

To find traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Empire trip itinerary planner.

Cleveland to Empire is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Cleveland in September, plan for little chillier nights in Empire, with lows around 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
