Nightlife

For many Mackinac Island visitors, the fun is just starting when the sun sets and the last ferry leaves the dock. That’s when the sounds of big band, folk, rock, country, jazz and blues fill the restaurants and pubs. The tunes mix with the relaxing notes of foghorns, waves, seagulls and horse hooves to create a symphony of Mackinac Island nightlife. Experiencing the afterhours vibe is a bucket-list reason to stay the night on Mackinac Island.
