Grand Hotel – Photos

Grand Hotel is situated on the southwestern bluff of Mackinac Island overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and – in the distance – the Mackinac Bridge. From the front porch – the world’s largest at 660 feet – guests can look down at the well-kept gardens and relax and enjoy the ambiance of “somewhere in time”. It is no wonder that hollywood has chosen to come here more than once. Indeed, like a classic movie, Grand Hotel is larger that life.

What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

Mackinac Island Fudge Scenic Route. Might be a sugar buzz that’s keeping the wheels turning or the endless colors in the interior trails but this place is more than just arch Rock

My dad absolutely loved drinking coffee and every now and then I would spoil him with a cappuccino when I was free during the hectic summer months. Before he passed, it was pretty obvious to combine our famous family fudge recipe and my most popular flavored brew, Love Potion #9 together. It has become a favorite for both candy and coffee lovers alike. Available again this season at the shops and online! .

#MackinacIsland is a beautiful place that definitely lives up to all the hype. It’s one of Michigan’s top tourist draws, and for good reason. Visiting this lovely island, just a 20 minute ferry ride from the mainland, is like stepping back in time. Cars were banned on #Mackinac in 1898 and haven’t been allowed since, so island life revolves around horses and bicycles. #VictorianArchitecture predominates as well, making for incredible scenery at every turn. I truly loved it there. #MyMackinac #MackinacIslandLife #MackinacIsle #PureMichigan
