Named “The Most Beautiful Place in America” by ABC’s Good Morning America, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offers breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and spectacular scenery—and that’s from ground level. MyNorth videographer Kris Riley strapped in with Traverse City Helicopters for a Sleeping Bear Dunes tour of epic proportions. Taking off from Traverse City and flying over Leelanau County, a tour with Traverse City Helicopters allows passengers to see the lakeshore from a new, incredible perspective.  From the blue depths of Grand Traverse Bay, Lake Michigan and Glen Lake to the lush canopies and sprawling orchards of Leelanau Peninsula, this grand tour of Northern Michigan is taken at 3000 feet.
