“Quiet respite in the Mackinac area.....history...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2007

The Father Marquette National Memorial is a tribute to the French missionary who served the Great Lakes area (and beyond) during the mid-1660's. He helped guide the French and Indian alliances during this time. Free. Very quiet here. Interpretive trail; good views of Mackinac Bridge. Used to be a decent little museum here, and I thought they had rebuilt it. No so, and that is unfortunate. Thus the "average" rating.
