Great Ports - Old Mackinac lighthouse


Beautiful Mackinaw city, a place to go to get picturesque images everywhere you look. Clear waters and the city right by the bridge is a fun time. Go explore the island, check out the Grand Hotel, and visit Old Mackinac lighthouse.

Don’t forget to get fudge from this city! You’ll regret it if you don’t!
