“Nice shopping and dining area in a little town with many tourist attractions!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I visited this shopping/ dining area while visiting Machinaw City and Island. There are many nice shops selling the usual souvenirs like magnets, t shirts, shot glasses, postcards, etc. There is a nice variety of stores here including a religious bookstore/gift shop, fudge and snack shops, Delsol which sells nail polish which changes colors in sunlight , kids stores, etc. It is nice just to stroll around and leisurely shop. It is a short walk to restaurants, and the hotels and in the summer stores stay open late. I would highly recommend a visit to Mackinaw Crossings while you are in the area. You will enjoy this area and it is kept nice and clean. Oh , there is also a laser light show in the summer at night here .

“Wonderful shopping area while visiting Mackinaw City”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Mackinaw Crossing is a must to visit!! There are so many little shops and restaurants in this area. Also a wonderful hardware store and also a great bakery just around the block. The shops are diverse. There are many trinket shops with fun gifts but there are also many beautiful shops with glassware and jewelry and clothing. You will come back many times to this area if you are in Mackinaw City for several days. Don't forget to stop at the Pancake Chef for breakfast or their dinner buffet. Also if traveling with your pet - many of the stores allow them inside but all pets are welcome to walk around the shops.

“Fun, little shops”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Most of the shops sell the typical souvenirs and knick knacks. If you see a tshirt or sweatshirt at one store, you'll see the same tshirt or sweatshirt at another store. They all have pretty much the same prices. The bronze man statue on a bike is fun to watch. I am not going to spoil the fun, just put a $1.00 in the bike basket and watch what happens :)

“nice but average”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The shops are typical. Lots of your run of the mill souvenirs. Hosh posh knick-knacks, fudge and popcorn shops, t-shirts, gag gifts, etc, etc. There's a unique store here and there but they are few and far between. If you are looking for handmade items/art galleries than you might be disappointed. I myself love artist villages and the like, but I do also look forward to places like this when i go on vacation. It's part of what makes it a vacation.
The area is very pretty. You have the Mackinaw Bridge in the distance, it's right on the coast of Lake Huron, and the shopping center itself is well maintained and charming.
There's lots of shops, a glass maze, a haunted house, and a pavilion where musicians and other artists can perform.
While we were there, we were lucky enough to catch a little bit of a guitar player playing some blues on stage. I wish i knew his name because I would like to listen to more of his music because he was GOOD! I'm not usually a blues fan, but it was great stuff.

“Shopping”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Seems like it used to have more for the kids to do and now it is just a big shopping place. Laser show at night was a unique experience. Disappointed not enough fun for kids. 3D glass maze was cool though!
