Autumn is a time for a slower pace on the island when the bustle of the summer traffic begins to fade and the leaves fade to warm oranges and reds. This doesn't mean there isn't still fun to be had, however! Many of the iconic Mackinac Island activities like hiking and biking are perfect in the cooler months with a little more space to enjoy your trip. The plethora of activities combined with the decline in traffic might make fall the best time to visit the island!
A special fall color tour flight with Great Lakes Air lets you see Mackinac Island from a whole new perspective. We bet you can even spot the Mackinac House from all the way up there! Horseback trail riding is another unique way to experience the island.
