What's open for business May 4th weekend

My husband and I have decided we have to visit Mackinac Island each season after spending 4 wonderful days this winter at the end of January. We are returning to the Cottage Inn with Rich and Marg. Please advise how much of the island is open for business besides the Fort, Sea Buscuit and part of the Grand Hotel. Thanks for any information you can share with us in advance of our trip up there May 4 thru 7th.

Over half of the businesses and attractions will be open or opening this weekend. For example, Fort Mackinac is opening Thursday and the carriage tours start their season on Friday.

You might want to call Rich and Marg at the Cottage Inn and they maybe able to tell you what is open or going to be open.

LHL2 is correct, most everything is going to be open (notable exception being the Park's downtown historic buildings and Art Museum).

Even if a few places are still closed, you'll likely see the island coming to life. Horses arriving, stores preparing to open, etc.

Be sure to walk the bluffs as some of the private homes may also be getting spruced up for the season...plus a walk along the trails (Anne's Tablet Trail is a personal favorite that's close to town on the East Bluff) will likely reveal some not-so-often seen spring blooms. Trillium, lady slippers, lilacs and more abound this time of year.

Have a great visit!

Thanks for the help. It is so nice to hear ideas from other people who love Mackinac Island. I think Trip Advisor is just the best. Thanks again.
