Climb aboard this old-style trolley tour to enjoy the unique Great Lakes experience available in the Village of Mackinaw City, Michigan.

This 2.5-hour trolley tour is the best way to begin your stay in the Straits area! While driving along in the trolley, a guide narrates the scenery and over 300 years of history that makes the area a sought-after destination. Transportation has always been the city's story, and of being a meeting place for hundreds of years. Many local landmarks illustrate where ships, railroads, and automobile travelers gathered in years past, and you will hear stories of a time long ago when the Native Americans walked the land in moccasins and built the earliest structures where the city now stands. In the past century, the whole city has been transformed from a small fishing village to a busy and upbeat destination for many visitors. The history is part of what makes it such an interesting and exciting vacation spot.
