For Fun

Mackinac Island is rated by National Geographic magazine as one of the top 10 most beautiful Islands. The many acres of natural shoreline and woodlands are enhanced by the fact that there are no cars allowed on the Island. Transportation is limited to walking, bicycling, horseback riding, or horse drawn taxi. If you are a sports enthusiast, this is the place to be. Eighty percent of the island is owned by the state park so there is an abundance of trails for hiking, biking and exploring. Boating, swimming and fishing are among the many water activities available.

There is a historic theater on Mackinac Island that features Monday night first run movies. Yoga classes are available through the Mackinac Arts Council. Ballroom dancing classes are also popular.

A short ferry boat ride to the mainland will allow for activities such as movies, bowling and various festivals throughout the season. In under an hour, you can drive to Canada (bring your passport) if you head north, or some of the coastal towns along Lake Michigan if you head south.

The Mackinac Arts Council offers many activities to get involved in, the music festival, arts festival etc.
