St. Ignace

Fish Feast in St. Ignace

For those who define a perfect day as one spent within sight of the seashore - welcome to St. Ignace. This historic community has made the most of its coveted spot in the Straits of Mackinac, offering vast and different experiences to the curious sightseer. Take a lazy stroll along the boardwalk and visit a lighthouse, marina, fishing pier and beaches. Whether traveling by bicycle, automobile, or on foot, State Street delivers you to unique shops, tasty eateries and a variety of museums and other attractions, including scenic air tours of The Inland Seashore. But the action isn’t limited to the waterfront only. Family-friendly stops like Castle Rock, the Mystery Spot, and others are only minutes away.

The St. Ignace harbor is an active one, both on the water and on shore. Three Mackinac Island ferry services operate from the St. Ignace harbor, offering the shortest crossing to the island. Lighthouse cruises, sunset cruises and vesper cruises are also available from St. Ignace. Land lubbers will also find fun at the harbor, where fireworks are on display at dusk on summer Saturdays and a series of events welcome warm-weather visitors.
