1. Grand Hotel – Mackinac Island
Time stands still on Mackinac Island, a 3.8-square-mile island above Michigan’s northern shore where cars are prohibited and everyone gets around by foot or by horse and buggy. In fact, the only way to reach the island itself is by ferry, private boat, small aircraft, or a snowmobile in the winter over an ice bridge.
It’s in this secluded and devastatingly charming island where you and your loved one will find the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. At the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, enjoy your partner’s company on the world’s longest porch, stroll through the town on a horse-drawn carriage, and make sure you try the famous fudge, a Mackinac Island tradition since the 1800s.
