Mackinaw City ©
Mackinaw City is a village in Emmet and Cheboygan counties in the U.S. Visiting Thorne Swift Nature Preserve and Oswald's Bear Ranch will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Shepler's Lighthouse Cruises and Cross In The Woods National Shrine. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mackinaw City: Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum (in Northport), Tahquamenon Falls State Park (in Paradise) and Three Pines Studio (in Cross Village). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Mackinaw Bridge Museum, kick back and relax at Emmet County Beach 1 Mackinaw City, and look for gifts at JoAnn's Fudge.

Discover how to plan a Mackinaw City trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 73°F in July, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
