Tour itinerary:

A very special opportunity: Staying right on the Island for two nights! Welcome to the breathtaking beauty of Mackinac Island, Michigan’s most photographed and talked-about travel destination. Located between Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas, the Island offers you unforgettable natural beauty, surrounded by the clean, sparkling water of the Great Lakes! Our expanded Summer trip will find us taking in the beautiful Lilac Festival held annually on the Island, and also basking for two nights in the fine service and warm hospitality of “The Island House”, a registered Michigan Historic Landmark. Mackinac Island is everything you’ve heard it was and more!

June 11-12 – We’ll travel northwest with time to get-acquainted with our new traveling friends and arrive in Mackinaw city late afternoon. The first evening, you can enjoy their new shopping and dining experience, Mackinaw Crossings, where you can get dinner and enjoy strolling the streets of this little Victorian Village. The next morning, we’ll cross the 5-mile “Mighty Mac” Bridge to St. Ignace and board a ferry to take us over to beautiful Mackinac Island where horse-drawn carriages will be waiting to take us on a delightful, narrated tour, ending at Ft. Mackinac with time to explore this piece of history. You’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy the Lilac festivities, the charming shopping areas, our beautiful accommodations, and the Island itself. A delicious dinner is included at our hotel this evening. (B, D)

June 13 – Totally free to have fun any way you wish amidst the many fun and interesting things to do on Mackinac Island. The choices are especially plentiful during the Lilac Festival! Rent a bike and ride around the Island, or hire your own horse-drawn carriage. Purchase the Island’s world famous fudge at one of the many colorful shops all along the main street. For the history buffs, there are guided walking tours, or perhaps tea at the Ft. Mackinac Tea Room, or maybe a tour of the Astor Fur House. For water-lovers, there are boat excursions; for nature lovers, there is the new Butterfly Conservatory; for those who want to relax more than anything, there are miles and miles of beautiful lakeshore to sit along and daydream! The highlight of the day, however, will be your included “Grand Buffet Lunch” at the majestic 114-year old Grand Hotel, also called “The Crown Jewel of Mackinac Island” – wonderful in everyway. (B, L)

June 14 – We’ll ferry back to the mainland and journey over to the quaint Bavarian village of Frankenmuth where you will enjoy this delightful area, including time for you to get lunch! Much too soon, it will be time to head for Ohio, but the fun’s not over as we make a stop at the “Man’s Paradise” also known as Cabela’s. With rest stops and dinner stop planned for your traveling comfort, we finish our journey back – safe and sound, to our pick-up points. All-in-all, a wonderful opportunity to leave the rest of the world far behind and revel in the richness and charm of bygone era. (B)

Cost Includes: deluxe motorcoach transportation, three night’s accommodations including two right on Mackinac Island, admissions and activities as described above, 3 breakfasts, Grand Hotel Buffet Luncheon, dinner at The Island House, ferry fees, carriage tour, luggage service and taxes.
