Rich in history, magnificent in scenery, and abundant in hospitality, Mackinaw City lies at the very tip of Michigan's Lower Peninsula and is the area's own majestic playground.

Due to its strategic location on the crossroads of the Great Lakes, this area has always been a gathering place for early inhabitants.

These Arcadia Publishing pictorial history books are superb! I've started collecting them ....they are wonderful!! History at a glance and wonderful images. Thanks to Arcadia and its great authors. In addition to 'Mackinaw City,' I also have 'Michigan State Ferries' by Les Bagley, 'Mackinac Bridge' by Mike Fornes, and just got 'Cheboygan' by Matthew Friday. Anyone who likes Michigan history or 'up north' 'tip of the mitt' books should add these to his/her library!! Superb!!!
