Mackinac Island is indeed open year ‘round. But, the hearty few that visit find a completely different Mackinac Island to experience, which is unlike the spring, summer or fall travel season. This makes it the perfect getaway for those who want a much slower pace-so that it’s easier to get quiet, hang out and enjoy the company of friends, family and the great outdoors.
