Lilac Time at Mackinac Island - June 11-14, 2020

Join us for Lilac Time at Mackinac Island. The island is home to all 23 lilac species, some 400 varieties and thousands of individual plants. In June, these flowers radiate their perfume into the windy straits, mixing with the aroma of warm fudge from Main Street’s famous fudge shops, and fresh horse apples to create a signature Mackinac Island scent. This charming island offers a slower pace of life. In addition to the included tours, guests can stroll along the boardwalk lined with a variety of shops, sample fudge, ride a bike, explore the many art galleries, or simply watch the world go by from a comfy porch chair.

Additional Information

Departures Cities: Worthingto and Marion

Day 1 (D): This morning we depart for Mackinaw City, Michigan to board the ferry for the 16-minute transfer to Mackinac Island. People have remarked that a visit to this charming island is like “stepping back into time, to a living Victorian village.” Transportation is limited to horse and buggy, bicycle, or by foot. Upon arrival we check into the Island House Hotel, our home for the next three nights. Tonight, dinner is included in the hotel’s 1852 Grill Room overlooking the water. You are free to choose your dining time.

Day 2 (B): After an included breakfast, we board our carriages for the Mackinac Island Carriage Tour. Sit back and relax while your driver relates the history of the island and its colorful inhabitants. Afterwards we will return to the Island House, where the rest of the day is yours to relax or sightsee on your own. Explore the island’s quaint shops, boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, and museums. For the more adventurous, you can bike around the island, play a round of golf, or go horseback riding. Bike rentals, golf tee times and horseback riding can be arranged at the hotel, or in town at the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau located on Main Street, a short distance from the hotel.

Day 3 (B, L, D): Breakfast is included this morning. Today we take a tour of Fort Mackinac and learn of its history. The former British and American military outpost was garrisoned from the late 18th century to the late 19th century in the city of Mackinac Island. The British built the fort during the American Revolutionary War to control the strategic Straits of Mackinac between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. After our tour, we stop for lunch at Fort Mackinac Tea Room. This is one of the most delightful and scenic settings on Mackinac Island. Enjoy a delicious meal with exceptional views of downtown Mackinac Island and the harbor. And of course, no visit to the island would be complete without sampling their famous fudge. Treat yourself and remember–it also makes a great gift! Later tonight, you will gather with your fellow travelers for a group dinner, served in the hotel’s Webster Room. After dinner, watch the sun set over Mackinaw with a Sun Set Sail cruise. Drink in the views on a gorgeous sightseeing tour, while sipping your favorite drink (cash bar) on the water.

Day 4 (B): Following breakfast, hop aboard the ferry for the return trip to Mackinaw City, then settle into our motorcoach for the drive home.
