Mackinaw City is a village in Emmet and Cheboygan counties in the U.S. Step off the beaten path and head to Palms Book State Park and Crisp Point Lighthouse. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mackinaw City: Petoskey (Kilwins Chocolate Kitchen & Little Traverse Wheelway), Soo Locks (in Sault Ste. Marie) and Paradise (Tahquamenon Falls & Tahquamenon Falls State Park). There's still lots to do: take in the views from Mackinac Bridge, take an in-depth tour of Mackinaw Bridge Museum, explore and take pictures at Deer Ranch, and visit a coastal fixture at Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Mackinaw City trip maker .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 73°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
