Delight Dad with a Mackinac Island Getaway
This year, give Dad something he'll really love – a Mackinac Island getaway. The island’s natural beauty and old-world charm combine to make it an ideal retreat from the everyday world, and with the lilacs in glorious bloom throughout, make June one of the best times to visit. Stroll along a delightfully unique downtown, with nothing but the slow clip-clop of horse’s hooves as accompaniment. Or, explore with guides as you hike along on the Mackinac Revealed walking tour, the Market Street Art Walk, or the Mackinac Island Legends and Lore Trek.
June is the month that Mackinac celebrates all things lilac with their annual Lilac Festival. True lilac lovers can learn all about the island’s festival flower, and how to grow and care for their own with nationally renowned expert Jeff Young. Or, take in dozens of additional festival events and activities, such as the coronation of the festival queen and her court, the Lilac 10K Run/Walk, and the daily local artist shows.
