Visit Mackinaw City on the Straits of Mackinac
Mackinaw City's location at the most Northern tip in the lower peninsula is the perfect destination for visitors. With Lake Michigan on one side and Lake Huron on the other side, this is a true Great Lake's spot.
And the Mackinac Bridge! This spectacular bridge spans the Straits of Mackinac and connects the Lower Peninsula's Mackinaw City with the Upper Peninsula's St. Ignace. Mackinac Island visitors can reach the island by one of three Mackinaw City ferry lines.
There is so much to see and do in Mackinaw City. This is a region that is rich in history. Colonial Michilimackinac, a 1770's era fort and fur trading center, has been restored and reconstructed to offer a glimpse of life 240 years ago. Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park and the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse complete the historic offerings in Mackinaw City.
