Why Threads of Mackinac Loves the Visitors on Mackinac Island

As the summer on Mackinac Island winds-up to peak season, the horses are ready — including the one out front of Threads of Mackinac — and all the employees on the island are ready to make each person’s visit a pleasant experience. Why? Because that’s what we’re here for.

After all, there wouldn’t be a Mackinac Island without them. For centuries, tourism has been the driving force behind Mackinac Island’s economy. Over one million tourists embark to Mackinac Island each year. Some stay on the island, some make the commute from near-by Mackinaw City or St. Ignace. Either way, Mackinac Island is an escape from the rest of the world. It’s a step back in time, and a mental vacation that lets you slow down and take the day as it comes.

On Mackinac Island we take life at a turtle’s pace. That means taking the time to get to know one another, actually listening, slowing down, and, at Threads of Mackinac, offering the best customer care possible. Every experience on Mackinac Island is its own special moment — a morning coffee at Lucky Bean Coffee House, a scoop of ice cream at Sadie’s Ice Cream Parlor, or a bike ride up to Arch Rock — but when you put them all together, that’s magic.

Visitors activate the spirit of Mackinac Island. Families come here year after year, celebrating traditions and creating their own. The smell of lilac and love is in the air, from engagements to weddings and anniversaries. Mackinac holds a place in people’s hearts long after they’ve left the island.

Every visitor has their own #puremackinac story. We’re just happy that we can be a small part of commemorating those memories, something you can take with you after you board the ferry back to the mainland.
