Summer Activities on Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island thrives in the summer months, where the sweet breezes of the lake grace the shores and make visitors fall in love with our beautiful island. Many consider summer to be the best time to visit the island, as most activities are available and the weather is exceptional.

  • The 4th of July also draws many visitors (and several for which it is tradition!). 
  • The Fudge Festival in August is a sweet celebration of the island's famous treat.
