Mackinac Island is one of Northern Michigan’s treasures. Time stops on this historic island and you can’t drive cars there. Instead, you must take a ferry there. Once there, plan on bike riding around the island or taking a horse and carriage. And no visit to the island is complete without a tour or tea at The Grand Hotel!
During the summer, ferries run every few minutes. Check out the schedules and even buy tickets at one of the ferry operators:
Mackinac Island is open all year. But, the hearty few that visit in the winter find a completely different Mackinac Island to experience, which is unlike the spring, summer or fall travel season. This makes it the perfect getaway for those who want a much slower pace.

And don’t forget Mackinac City and the historic Fort and fun shops. And, of course, there's the amazing Mackinac Suspension Bridge - a true architectural feat.
