One thing you can count on from Mackinac is its moderate climate in the summer months — not too hot, not too cold — perfect for exploring all of the outdoor wonders the island has to offer well into September.
Of course, when the temperatures do dip, there’s no reason you should have to hide away. Here are 3 cozy locales perfect for cozying up with one of Threads of Mackinac’s Sherpa Blankets: Stargaze at British Landing On the northwest side of Mackinac Island, British Landing’s rocky beach offers a dynamic view of Lake Huron and, at night, the gorgeous stars above.
During the day, British Landing is bustling with tourists, but come night the beach is yours to snuggle up with a warm blanket, stargaze and let your worries melt away. Because Mackinac Island isn’t polluted by vehicle traffic and combustion emissions, the stars really do shine brighter.
Take a Romantic, Private Carriage Ride From Mackinac Island Carriage Tour’s private taxi’s to individualized tours from Gough Livery Carriages, make your way around Mackinac Island in style and let your chauffer take the reins. If you prefer to drive yourself, Jack’s Livery Stable offers buggies for-rent, available by the hour. Stable hands are there to give you a short lesson, and then you’re on your way.
