Tour The Island
A popular way to get a closer look at the Island and its history is through horse-drawn carriage tours, where you’ll be led by a well-informed guide for an intimate and informative experience. Drive-your-own buggies are also available for vacationers who prefer to direct themselves.

Both forts are now open to visitors keen to delve deeper into the area’s past.

Water Activities And Sports
No Mackinac vacation is complete without a bit of time spent on the water. At Mackinac Island, a myriad of boating tours are available on watercraft ranging from sailboats to kayaks. Visitors can also spend a relaxing day fishing on the Straits of Mackinac, or if they’d like to up the ante, learning to parasail.

What is it about an island and vacations? It’s a natural fit on Mackinac Island. You have an Island where the automobile never replaced the horse and carriage. You have lodging properties where corporations never replaced family ownership. You have a Revolutionary era Fort where the British couldn’t permanently replace Americans. You have Fudge Stores where box recipes never replaced our 19th Century recipes. You have a place to leave your routine, discover the rhythm of waves and horse-clops and a place that getting to is half the fun.
