3. Visit Mackinac Island
Ranked by USA Today as the best summer travel destination in the US for 2023, it is well worth a trip from the city. The publication wrote of the island:
Between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas, you’ll find Mackinac Island, where you’ll ride on horse-drawn carriages along car-free roads, observe fudge being made (and then sample it) and tour the historic Fort Mackinac. This Lake Huron-based continental island is also home to Mackinac Island State Park, where you can hike, bike, kayak, and take photos of the local natural beauty, including the stunning limestone Arch Rock.
A chill summertime activity calls for a relaxing Candlelight Concert. Thousands of flameless candles illuminate Detroit hideouts. Whether as a family or date night, it’s an enchanting summer experience! Reserve your next Candlelight Concert or check out some of our June favorites below:
