We needed a place to stay the night before taking the ferry over to Mackinac Island. The choices are small, quaint St. Ignace, or the bigger, touristy town of Mackinaw City. The cities are on each side of the Mackinac Bridge: Mackinaw City is on the southern/Lower Michigan side, and St. Ignace is on the northern/UP side.
We were on the road, so I called the visitor center of Mackinaw City, and NO one answered the phone. I then called the St. Ignace visitor center, and a nice, older lady answered the phone…thus prompting us to stay in St. Ignace. We had a lovely, relaxed evening and a great dinner at The Galley.
