Hop aboard the ferry to be transported back in time in only 20 minutes!

Mackinac (say Mackinaw) Island, ranked as a Top 10 Island by TripAdvisor and USA Today, is also known as the Jewel of the Great Lakes, resting between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan.

And what a unique vacation spot! Fought over by the British, French and Americans more than 200 years ago, the island has become a perfect retreat taking you back to a 19th century way of life. No vehicles on the island, but plenty of horse-drawn carriages, bicycles, and limestone rock formations, as well as current tourist attractions. You’ll want to bring back some famous Mackinac Island fudge, discover Native American art, and explore plentiful and unique shops. Hike or bike or go on horseback around the island. It’s only eight miles and if you time it right, you’ll breathe in extraordinary sunrises and sunsets.

Stay on the island at one of many charming hotels or the historic Grand Hotel, treating you to old-world hospitality, afternoon tea, fine dining, golf, dancing and the world’s longest porch that overlooks the five-mile long Mackinac Bridge. The National Historic Landmark is one of the finest summer resort hotels in the world and has been visited by several celebrated individuals including Mark Twain and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Celebrate summer by visiting the island with a historic trip back in time.
