Why choose Mackinaw City hotels and lodging over staying on Mackinac Island on your next Mackinac vacation? Because it is an awesome Michigan destination by itself!
First, there are several activities to enjoy during your stay right in Mackinaw City.
Whether taking in the history of Fort Michilimackinac, Mill Creek, and the Old Mackinac Lighthouse, or soothing your sweet tooth at Murdick's Fudge (get the peanut butter…it is awesome!) the all around enjoyment will have something for each member of the family to do.
Secondly, there are some great places and a variety of accommodations choices available and many are much less expensive than an island hotel. Mackinaw City Michigan hotels and campgrounds are some of the best around.
If you are a family who feels that it is important to feel extravagant and pampered…then the Clarion Beachfront will be a favorite. Some rooms even have hot tubs in them. It is adjacent to the Mackinac Island ferries, has 300 feet of beautiful sandy beach, free concerts and even a free nightly laser light show. It is a perfect choice for even the pickiest travelers.Check current rates and reviews for this hotel...
Couples taking trips will absolutely adore the Brigadoon Bed and Breakfast. Many times when you stay in Bed & Breakfasts the biggest concern is the privacy and the lack of it in many places.
That is definitely not the case here. So if you just feel the need to get away from the crowd, you won't be disappointed. With a Jacuzzi situated inside each suite and a chance to get comfortable around the fire place…every minute you're there will be an enjoyable one.
Ever think it would be possible to take a cruise without going on an actual cruise? Its the feel you get when staying at the Ramada Limited Waterfront as the hotel hosts a colorful nautical theme which you see as you walk up to the hotel. It is an easy walking distance to all the area has to offer, ferries to Mackinaw Island, restaurants, shopping, live theater, entertainment, and more. It even has a nice heated indoor pool for your enjoyment on those not-so-warm days.Check current rates and reviews for this hotel...
Even if you don't have an RV, Mill Creek is a great Mackinaw City lodging choice...even for those a little uneasy about camping. You can always stay in one of the log cabins on site. Some are like little log cabin apartments with a refrigerator, stove, air conditioning and a bathroom with a shower! Some of the cabins and camping spots have a gorgeous view of the Mackinac Bridge. So if sitting by a fire roasting marshmallows and gazing at the lights on the Bridge sounds good…this is your heaven.
