While you can relax anywhere, some places just do a better job in setting a scene that’s seemingly made specifically for relaxation. Relaxing on Mackinac is as natural as the Island’s beauty.

Maybe it’s the sweeping views of the water. Maybe it’s all the cute boutiques. Maybe it’s the lack of motor traffic and blaring car horns. Maybe it’s…well, you get the point: there are MANY reasons why Mackinac Island is the perfect environment for relaxation for all types of personalities and preferences.

However, if you solve for relaxation by adding stunning views plus a cozy chair to kick back in, plus a compelling book, plus a favorite drink, then we have good news: Mackinac Island is ready for you.

Picture this: a lush green lawn nestled next to Lake Huron and the Mackinac Straits with numerous rows of Adirondack chairs. It’s a warm, sunny day where a slight breeze hits you just right. You’re rocking sunglasses and the sun’s rays are gifting you the perfect tan as you sit and read a book you just can’t put down. People near you are flying kites and you can hear the sound of kids laughing while playing croquet and bocce ball not too far from you. This is the scene on the Mission Point Resort Great Lawn.

The lawn implores relaxation and lounging. You may intend to sit down for a short period, but the setting easily sways you to stay longer. Mackinac Island visitors love this spot to read, picnic, fly a kite, and play some yard games.

And when the sun punches out and the night sky clocks in, continuing the seaside, peaceful relaxation vibes is no problem. Numerous restaurants line the water along Main Street where you can sit, eat, and enjoy a little wine.

When it’s summertime in Michigan you deserve to put the “I” in Island. Have some “me” time on Mackinac Island and relax. The sights, sounds, and tastes will do the rest.
