Visit Mackinaw City in Northern Michigan

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.

One of the most famous sights in Mackinaw City is 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.
