Mackinaw Island Mi
Properly Spelled Is Mackinac

Mackinaw Island Mi is a common spelling mistake with the correct spelling being Mackinac Island Mi. It's a small island in the Straits of Mackinac in northern Michigan.

It's a common mistake spelling it as "Mackinaw" since the gateway city from Michigan's mainland to Mackinac Island is the most popular northern Michigan vacation community of Mackinaw City.

Mackinaw City is spelled with the "aw" at the end which is French while Mackinac is spelled the British way using the silent "c" at the end. Mackinaw City has many fantastic family vacation attractions and has all the Mackinac Island ferries docks in walking distance from most of its hotels and motels.
