How long will you be there?

The carriage ride is obviously on Mackinac Island not Mackinaw City.

There's the fort in Mackinaw City and there's also the Icebreaker Mackinaw in Mackinaw City.

Of course the island has its own fort, and other historic homes so lots of educational opportunities there.

Driving across the Mackinac Bridge is a must-do.

Buy fudge. Eat whitefish or perch. Have a pastie.

Worthwhile nearby places:

Dark Sky Park just outside the city

Day trip to Taquamenon Falls in Paradise, Mi (upper peninsula)

Obviously, Mackinac Island

Rent (or bring your own) bikes on the island and ride....

If you're maritime history/great lakes enthusiasts:

SOO locks are very interesting....

As is the whitefish point maritime museum....

A very short drive away is the dark sky park at the Headlands. Check out their website, it is a unique place.

Stay in St Ignace. Much more enjoyable than overly expensive Mack city.
