A nice scenic lookout, a trail to the shore, and a step back in history makes this a great stop when in Mackinaw City! We have 4 kids ages 3-13, and they all enjoyed our time there. There is a self guided audio tour that you can download on your phone with QR codes or through a website. Very interesting and informative.
