Historic Downtown St. Ignace 

Feel the bay breeze caress your face and ruffle your hair as you stroll historic downtown St. Ignace, breathing in fresh lake air scented with hints of chocolate nut fudge! Here you can explore a wide variety of shops and emporiums, a pharmacy and gift shop, restaurants, pubs, and museums that hug the Moran Bay waterfront for more than a mile. Browse a fine selection of high-end sportswear, work by local artists, and one-of-a-kind souvenirs. Eat ice cream cones, world-famous fudge, and sample a famous U.P. pastie all the while gazing out at the bold blue bay. 

Hotels and Motels 

North of the downtown business district are many of St. Ignace’s hotels and motels. Here you will find another offering of restaurants and shops, including fish and meat markets and an upscale furniture and home décor consignment shop, the hospital, and a pharmacy. 

Odds & Ends 

If you forgot to pack a toothbrush or flip flops or need duct tape or a lawn rake, two dollar stores and two hardware stores carry what you need. And if you’re up for a little adventure shopping, The Hope Chest Resale Shop on Ferry Lane, a half block from the Family Fare grocery store south of downtown, has gently used clothing for babies, children, and adults, shoes, dishes and housewares, furniture, sports equipment, toys, books, and so much more for perusing and purchasing. You never know what treasures you will find at The St. Ignace Hope Chest. Because the Hope Chest is run by volunteers, it is open limited hours only. For information about hours of operation, visit The Hope Chest on Facebook. 

And at the end of the day when your legs can navigate no more, a wide selection of hotels, motels, and condos overlooking the waterfront await your arrival.
