Stepping foot on beautiful Mackinac Island feels like stepping back to a time when life was simpler in some ways without the hustle and bustle of the city or a busy schedule directing you this way and that. For many, summer is just as busy as the rest of the year; however, a planned Mackinac Island getaway offers the opportunity to bring family together, strengthen old friendships, rekindle romances and remind you that true inspiration can be found just a ferry ride away within the Straits of Mackinac.
With no vehicles allowed on the island and only bikes, horses or your own feet to get you from place to place, you will literally slow down and be able to enjoy everything that this wonderful northern Michigan gem has to offer. From fishing and hiking to shopping and touring the Fort and many other historical sites, museums and natural rock formations, Mackinac Island offers something unique to do for everyone – and, of course, there is also an abundance of homemade fudge to enjoy. So plan ahead and hop on the ferry for one of Michigan’s most popular vacation destinations!
