With some awesome day trip options available in the surrounding area, having your own car makes good sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to experience everything that Mackinaw Township, 30 miles away, has to offer. Mackinac Bridge, Headlands International Dark Sky Park and Mackinaw City Ferry Terminal alone make the drive out worthwhile. Cheboygan is another popular option. It’s 40 miles away and home to an array of intriguing things to do. Cheboygan Marina, Cheboygan State Park and Cheboygan Opera House are only the start.
