Mackinaw City

As the most northern city in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, it’s your last stop before crossing the Mackinac Bridge. While you’re there, take some time to visit Fort Michilimackinac (pronounced: mish-il-ə-MAK-in-aô), an 18th-century fort and fur-trading village that takes you back to life in 1776.

Mackinac Island

This one-of-a-kind destination is a must-see for anyone visiting Northern Michigan. For example, with no cars on the island, it’s like you’ve gone back in time from the second you step off the ferry. In addition, while you’re there, you need to get a piece of the amazing handmade fudge.


Nestled along the shores of Little Traverse Bay, this beautiful town attracts visitors from all around. Moreover, downtown overlooks the bay and boasts numerous unique restaurants and shops. However, if you visit the beaches keep your eyes peeled for Michigan’s state stone, the Petoskey stone.

Traverse City
