Vast ocean with sail boat and sun rising
Mackinac Island

As if suspended in time, Michigan's beautiful Mackinac Island captures the ease of an earlier era. Here, horses and bicycles outnumber cars.

Mackinac Island is steeped in legend and lore. Be sure to include a visit to historic Fort Mackinac and take a horse-drawn carriage tour. Mackinac Island hotel visitors say it’s their favorite way to get around. More than 80% of the island is a state park, where miles of bicycle, hiking and horseback trails reward outdoor enthusiasts with spectacular scenery. Explore the shops, restaurants and bars downtown. Golf courses, pools and tennis courts are also available.

The island boasts several festive events, kicking off with the Lilac Festival in June and including Fourth of July celebrations and yacht races and the Mackinac Island Music Festival and Mackinac Island Fudge Festival in August. In October, fall colors cast a beautiful glow.
