Welcome to Straits of Mackinac!

The Straits of Mackinac, pronounced mac-i-naw, is the waterway that joins two of the Great Lakes, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. On the north shore of the straits, St. Ignace is a resort town that offers easy access to Mackinac Island, another resort area where transportation is limited to foot, bicycle and horse and buggy. Reaching over the straits, the Mackinac Bridge connects St. Ignace and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Mackinaw City and the northern portion of Mainland Michigan.While in Mackinaw City, visit historic Colonial Michilimackinac or escape onto the water on a fishing or sailing excursion. Another destination on Lake Huron is the harbor town of Cheboygan, which offers events such as the annual Cheboygan County Fair in early August. For the truly adventurous, tours of the 38-mile (61-km) Inland Waterway that flows from Crooked Lake along the Cheboygan River into Lake Huron are available.
