Visitor Couples Getaway Ideas: Where do you head? On a Romantic Mackinac Island Vacation, of course!

This is an island off the shores of the Michigan mainland, in which motored transportation is completely forbidden. As you travel out to the island you have the genuine experience of being taken away from the modern world. You escape to a very different world where the standard forms of transportation include bicycles and horse drawn carriages and breakfast is served up on China by the waterfront.

Romance is simple in this new world. The hotels are warm and inviting from the beautiful views outside the window to the cozy beds you will want to snuggle in for days. The Lakeview Hotel gives the feel of an ancient home built just for you, but with the modern convenience of a heated pool. The Grand Hotel features the world's longest porch, where you can rock the day away in side-by-side rocking chairs. Hotel Iroquois has an amazing restaurant where you can enjoy your favorite foods with your favorite person.

When you are ready to venture out of your hotel, hop on a horse drawn carriage or stop by the road to rent bicycles. You can tour Mackinac Island in one day on your own and there are many small shops for shopping and amusement. There are also some romantic places to slip away for an afternoon including:

  • Wings of Mackinac Butterfly Conservatory for the beautiful butterflies and amazing scents.

  • Colonial Michilimackinac for the reenactments that will really take you back to colonial life.

  • Or making the 8 mile bike ride around the only US Highway without cars!


If you want to forget the modern world, the ultimate couples escape is to Mackinac Island. It turns out Michigan is perfect for whisking that lover away for days or weeks at a time. (Just ask the hundreds who honeymoon there every year!)
