Mackinaw City is a quaint town at the "Tip o' the Mitt," set like a gem on the Straits of Mackinac. More than a great get-away, it's a discovery, an education, and adventure. Four National Historic Sites preserve the area’s rich heritage, offering exhibits, re-enactments, and hands-on experiences. Family fun abounds at Thunder Falls Waterpark. Catch a ferry to Mackinac Island for a journey back in time. Return to Mackinaw and discover our parks, beautiful beaches, 100+ shops, restaurants, golf courses, and a free nightly Laser Light Show.
The average vacation stay in Mackinaw City has extended in recent years due to the fact that the city is so convenient to major area attractions.
