The Mackinac Straits, just 3 1/2 miles wide, separate the tip of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan from the Upper Peninsula (UP). St. Ignace, on the UP, was founded in the 17th century as a Jesuit mission. Mackinac Island, five miles offshore from St. Ignace, is a National Historic Landmark and is lovingly restored to its Victorian-era resort town glory. You can catch ferries to Mackinac Island from St. Ignace and Mackinaw City on the Lower Peninsula, known for such sights as Fort Michilimackinac.

This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel and activities.
