Over 50 Years of Service!
Today our area enjoys the distinction of remaining one of the top tourist destinations in the State of Michigan
As we enter 2010, our fifty+ year, history brings back memories of concern for the business community. The Mackinac Bridge was to open in 1957. The car ferry would be obsolete in two years. The question was "Will this magnificent structure draw travelers across the bridge leaving Mackinaw City just a shell of a town?" On October 12 of that year, sixty determined people met at the Hotel Nokomis. They stood united in purpose to secure the future of Mackinaw City. Since then, the Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce has been the voice of the business community, providing leadership, information and support for our members. We form effective partnerships with other local organizations, strive to improve the local business climate, and reinforce pride and involvement in our community year-round.
Today our area enjoys the distinction of remaining one of the top tourist destinations in the State of Michigan. The Chamber office continues to unite businesses and services, implement events, inform our growing membership and welcome visitors. Please visit our office in the Mackinaw Crossings Mall or call us at (231) 436-5574 and see how you can become a member!
