Although it is your typical tourist trap type of place with its t-shirt shops etc it is a nice break from the main street places. I liked it had a little play area for kids and a area in the middle to sit and enjoy some music. Not a bad place to go sit and relax.

Fun souvenir stores to get lost in, along with other shops and a few eateries. They also have entertainment in their center stage area constantly. We caught the laser light show, music, and a dog agility competition.

I have been coming to the area regularly ever since I was 5 years old. This place used to be vibrant and thriving, and it took a real hit after the economy tanked. The last time I had been here prior this time was 3 years ago, and wow I can't believe how much it changed. Most of the good... More

Mackinaw Crossings is an outdoor mall of shops, restaurants and includes a main stage for music and a nightly light show. We have been visiting The Crossings since it opened. Unfortunately The Crossings has gone downhill over the past 5 or so years. Most of the best shops in the Crossings have closed. There seems to be an abundance of... More

So many shops with great options for every budget. We always get ice cream and treasure our purchases. Public bathrooms are always a disappointment, oh well. The atmosphere is great, so close to the lake and the island. We've taken the ferry in years past, everyone should go to the island once.

This is a good place to go just to spend some time wandering about shopping, looking for desserts, while seeing some free entertainment. Nothing earth shattering and has changed since our last visit when we enjoyed a musical show. We could not even find that as if is disappeared or was removed for shopping.

e went there and it was OK. Was fun to go and just walk threw the shops but not in our price range. Was a nice building and some of the shows were good to see.

We've always gone to Mackinaw crossings over a span of 20 summers. A place that once flourished appeared to be a ghost town today! Many of the stores are vacant and up for lease. It is sad to see how things have changed over the years. There is no longer a spa, there are hardly any restaurant options left to... More

This review is mainly about the laser light show. Me and my misses, come up here every year and always showed up at the laser light show, which was always, extremely cheesy, but that was basically the fun of it. However, this year, we came up to find a whole new show. What was sad, is this "new" show, is... More
