This is a combination of Michigan’s most unique destinations. Each having a significant European heritage that we have combined into one fascinating itinerary. On this trip you will see Bavarian Frankenmuth, the Victorian Resort of Mackinac Island, and the Dutch settlement of Holland.
Uniquely American, and unique in America, your imagination will quickly capture the “Somewhere in Time” feeling. This is an 1890’s Resort Island that literally has no automobiles. The architecture is preserved as it was then. It is as though you step through a portal when you step off the ferry. Here you not only visit a new destination, you visit it in a past moment.
A great getaway this journey to Northern Michigan features the music of troubadour Gordon Lightfoot, a visit to Mackinac Island and a night at the Thunder Bay Resort where you learn about Elk!
Join us we repeat the past and celebrate The Gilded Age at Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel. Here you can let imagination inspire fantasy . . . “Can’t repeat the past?” he cried incredulously. “Why of course you can!” He looked around him wildly, as if the past were lurking here in the shadow of his house, just out of reach of his hand.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby.
