I have been visiting Mackinaw City for several years. I used to really like the crossings, but now we just make a quick walk thru and then we are done with it. Our favorite shop is Strait To The Pantry. Totally awesome shop and the folks who run it are A+!! They have held my items for me so I... More

This was a fun shopping experience when visiting Mackinaw City when it opened years ago. Over the years many different stores have come and gone and currently it sits with several empty buildings and can't seem to keep stores for long. The stores that are there are your typical tourist trap souvenir shops that keep the kids happy but the... More

Nice shops. My son loves the Enchanted Knights shop and that is honestly the only reason we go every year. The painted pavement is slippery in the rain and my husband nearly fell which was scary. We used to love the Mackinaw Outfitters store but now it is a giant junk store.

There were many little shops and restaurants to wander into and just look around. The people in each were friendly and informative. There were tables to sit at while noshing. Great way to spend an afternoon. There are some shops closed,but still plenty to visit.

When we travel to Mackinac Island every summer, we always stop in the city, and take a walk around Mackinaw Crossings. It seem every year it gets a little more run down. Definitely in need of some tlc. Many empty spaces, and has lost a lot of it's charm.

We have been vacationing to the straits and the Mackinaw City area for more than 30 yrs. It used to be a very busy city with many unique shops and restaurants. Even though it was a tourist town it was still immensely fun and entertaining. Now it's become a ghost town if you will. Most of the shops have closed... More

There are a lot of shops and a great place to go for an evening stroll. Live performance is in the center of the Crossings. Several fudge shops and ice cream. It takes about 45 minutes to walk the length of the mall which is full of visitors in the evening. A manmade water brook is located in the center... More

We briefly visited one evening, although most of the stores were closed, or ready for closing. What we saw was very nice, the water running through the central are is very pretty. It seems like a nice place to spend a little time, maybe stopping for refreshments.

Many shops tucked away with Michigan products and souvenirs. Watched the laser light show at night and had a great time listening to music.
