Mackinac Island & the Great Lakes

Charming and historic hotels, beautiful Lake Michigan, fun experiences, and beautiful scenery…all of this and more await you on this Mackinac Island & the Great Lakes Tour.

A highlight of this tour is the time you’ll spend on Mackinac Island, one of the country’s favorite summer retreats. Here, bicycles and horse-drawn carriages are the only means of transportation. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage tour of Mackinac Island and spend two nights at the elegant Grand Hotel, with its Victorian-style architecture. Witness amazing views as you sit in a rocking chair on the world’s longest porch. Behold more amazing views on your drive in northern Michigan’s famed Tunnel of Trees, a narrow, winding highway with rolling hills following the shores of Lake Michigan. Also, marvel at breathtaking views of Lake Michigan from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, with its miles of sand beach, lush forests, and high dunes.

Outside of Detroit, visit the Henry Ford Museum, with innovations and artifacts from America’s past, including the Rosa Parks Bus, the world’s premier automotive collection, the JFK Presidential limousine, and much more. In Grand Rapids, visit the Gerald Ford Presidential Library & Museum to learn about the lives of President and Mrs. Ford. To make this tour unique, Globus also has included some out-of-the-ordinary experiences. Enjoy a Bavarian dinner and wine tasting in Frankenmuth, a small Bavarian town founded in 1845. In Petoskey, visit an orchard for a wagon ride and cherry pie. In Chicago, a private presentation at the historic and elegant Palmer House Hilton—where you’ll stay for the night—lets you learn about the hotel’s history and how one of America’s favorite desserts was created here.

From the vibrant cities and small towns to the scenic beauty and fun-filled experiences, this Mackinac Island & the Great Lakes tour is a charming vacation!
