This morning we’ll awaken in the Straits of Mackinac, which connect Lake Michigan to Lake Huron, and go ashore to Mackinac Island. With its Revolutionary-era heritage and car-free streets, arriving on Mackinac Island is like stepping back in time. In fact, the Island is so stepped with history that Mackinac is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Rejoice in simpler times as you enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride full of remarkable sightseeing and cultural discoveries. Along the way, you’ll drive by the Victorian-era Grand Hotel, where the movie “Somewhere in Time” was filmed, and visit Fort Mackinac, which was constructed by the British in 1780, taken by the Americans in 1796, and reclaimed by the British at the start of the War of 1812. This evening, you're invited to attend a delightful cocktail hour in the hotel lounge, where the Grand Hotel's resident historian will deliver a captivating presentation, the perfect illuminating end to your charming day.
