NIGHT SKY

The quiet, dark nights in St. Ignace, Mackinaw City, Les Cheneaux, DeTour, and beyond are perfect for stargazing.

 Just south of the Mackinac Bridge is the Headlands International Dark Sky Park. With over 500 acres of pristine woodlands, two miles of undeveloped Lake Michigan shoreline, and the Waterfront Event Center, the Headlands is a must visit destination. Access is typically free, though on some busy nights (meteor showers, aurora sightings) and for scheduled events, there may be a fee. Find out more by visiting www.midarkskypark.org. Want to stay above the Bridge? Take a drive out to the US-2 Dunes to the west or to Les Cheneaux in the east.
