Mackinaw City is located in Cheboygan County and Emmet County, at the very top of Michiganís lower peninsula, at the southern side of the Mackinaw Bridge. Gateway to the U.P., it is one of the top-of-the-list places to see in Michigan. Its many attractions include Fort Michilimackinac, the Old Mackinac Lighthouse, and Mill Creek. It also serves 3 passenger boat lines to Mackinac Island. Its many unique stores and restaurants along the main street area make it a great place to shop. The view of the Bridge is a must-see from the park along the coastline on the cityís north side.

Mackinaw City has a rich history. Samuel Champlain commissioned Jean Nicolet to explore the area in 1634 and make peace with the Indians. It eventually became a fur-trading post and later the site of the Fort, active from 1712-1781. The surrounding area was first officially platted in 1857. In 1870, George W. Stimson set up a store which led to the eventual formation of the town. It was incorporated as a village in 1882.
