Fly to Mackinac Island

 Voted “one of the top 10 islands in the world” by Conde Nast Traveler.  Mackinac Island is located in Lake Huron between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas. The island airport has a 3,500-foot paved runway for all types of small aircraft. Mackinac Island State Park covers approximately 80 percent of the island. Mackinac Island also includes Fort Mackinac as well as the island’s historic downtown and harbor. Visitors are not permitted to camp on the island, but numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts are available for a comfortable stay.

Tahquamenon Falls

The Tahquamenon Falls are two different waterfalls on the Tahquamenon River. Both sets are located near Lake Superior in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The water is notably brown in color from the tannins leached from the cedar swamps which the river drains. This phenomenon is responsible for the alternative local name ‘Root Beer Falls’.
