Mackinac City Michigan
Or Mackinaw City Michigan?
The correct spelling of Mackinac City Michigan is Mackinaw with a "w" at the end rather than a "c." But no matter how you spell Mackinaw City it's still one of the most popular northern Michigan vacation spots in all of Michigan. First of all it is the Gateway to magical
Mackinac Island, Michigan
which is spelled with a "c" at the end rather than a "w". Confusing isn't it?
Do you want to guess if the Bridge is with a "c" or a "w" at the end? Don't forget the bridge starts at Mackinaw City? Well, the correct spelling for
Big Mac is with a "c".
So, Mackinac Bridge is the correct spelling even though it is in Mackinaw City and ends in St. Ignace in the Upper Peninsula.
No matter how you spell Mackinaw City Michigan
it's a great choice as a vacation "Base Camp".
With its varied attractions such as
the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse,
the great camping at Mackinaw Mill Creek,
or all the other fun things to do in
you won't be disappointed when choosing one of the wonderful
Mackinac City Michigan hotels.
Insider Tip: When making Mackinaw City your base camp be sure you head west to visit beautiful
Wilderness State Park
for a fun day on a Lake Michigan beach that has a hard-packed sandy beach and is shallow for great wading or swimming...take a picnic for there aren't any restaurants near the beach! Or head further west after your day on the beach and visit
Cross Village with its historic Leggs Inn for dinner.
