Mackinaw-City is located on the Straits of Mackinac in northern Michigan, near the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The city makes a perfect base to explore the whole Mackinaw area that is steeped in history and natural beauty. Mackinaw Island is the Crown Jewel of the area, and can be reached by ferry from Mackinaw City. The island is eighty- percent State Park and is a virtual Victorian theme park where motor vehicles are not allowed. The pace is slow here, and you can tour the island only by horse and carriage, or on foot or bicycle. Mackinaw Island is a hustle and bustle of art galleries, unique shops and restaurants. Its also elegant and serene, with grand hotels of yesteryear that invite visitors to relax and enjoy the views. Another place of great historical interest in Mackinaw City is Colonial Michilimackinac, which is a reconstructed 1715 French fur-trading village and military outpost. The village features re-enactments from British occupation and the American Revolution era. Recreational activities near Mackinaw City include boating and fishing, swimming, relaxing on sandy beaches and scenic trails for hiking and biking.

Mackinaw City Weather & Climate

Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula enjoys moderate summers and cold winters. For decades, visitors have been coming to this area to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cooling effect of the lake breezes. The Lakes affect all areas of the weather, and summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the Lakes chill the air near the earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. In winter, the area becomes a wonderland of ice and snow, with an average of between 40-70 inches of snow, depending on location. Rainfall in upper Michigan is generally around 30 inches per year, with occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. Autumn is sunny with mild days and cool nights - too cold for swimming, but just right for other activities such as fall color tours, antiquing, golfing, and exploring the lake-studded countryside.
