If your time is short ...
and you only have a few hours to spend in the Mackinaw area, there are still plenty of things to do!
Discover the history of Mackinaw. The Mackinaw Historical Pathway system is a fun and informative way to learn about the area. Approximately 40 markers are scattered throughout the village that tell the tales of fur traders, Indians, French and British Soldiers and other interesting facts. The series of plaques are displayed along Huron Ave., Nicolet St., and Central Ave. The walking tour is self-guided and can begin at any of the markers.
Explore the shops and eateries around town. Taste our world-famous fudge, sip a delicious coffee drink, have a relaxing meal, and then pick up a souvenir from one of the many distinctive shops.
Visit Heritage Village where visitors explore life in the Straits of Mackinac as it was in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Heritage Village looks just as it would back in the day of no lights, no cars, no modern conveniences.
