Fun at the Fort
It may not feel like spring just yet, but it won’t be long before it makes its way to Mackinac Island, and with it, the reopening of the historic island landmark, Fort Mackinac! Opening for the season on May 2nd, visitors can tour Fort Mackinac, which was founded during the American Revolution and overlooks the scenic Straits of Mackinac. Visitors to the fort will experience fourteen original buildings, cannon salutes, bugle music, interactive displays of America’s past and even live historical reenactments! Located just a short walk from our Mackinac Island hotel, the fort is an amazing piece of history that takes visitors back in time to the birth of the United States of America.
