Make A Mackinac Memory
With the official opening of Fort Mackinac on Sunday, May 4, Mackinac Island ushers in the official start of another glorious season. This beloved island landmark, the oldest building in Michigan, is more than a military outpost – over the years, this fortress high on the bluff has served as a home for soldiers and their families and headquarters of Mackinac National Park. Make a day of it on May 4 (or any day), exploring the 14 lovingly restored structures of Mackinac Island's top attraction, taking a tour and viewing its historical exhibits. Founded in 1780, the fort overlooks the City of Mackinac Island and pretty Haldimand Bay. Before you head back to your Mackinac Island hotel, be sure to stop by Sutler's Museum Store, tucked within one-time Soldiers' Barracks, for unique Mackinac mementos.
