Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island


We are visiting the area for two nights in a few weeks. Planning to hit Mackinac Island the second day there.

But also looking for dining suggestions both in Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. And things suggested for sure we should do.

If you like history (or maybe even if you don't), I think one should visit Ft. Mackinac on the island. It's the oldest structure on the island and dominates the hill overlooking town, so I don't think one can claim to have seen everything on the island until they've been there. The horse drawn carriage tours seem a tad expensive, but if it's a one time thing, I guess it's worth the splurge just to say you did it. See Arch Rock from both the top and from the bottom. On the mainland, I'd recommend Colonial Michilimackinac. It's not quite as good as Ft. Mackinac, but it's still interesting.
