America’s Coolcation Destination is this Freshwater Island

As temperatures rise across the continental U.S., many travelers are seeking respite from the heat and gravitating toward vacation locations that offer a cooler climate.

As these “coolcations” gain in popularity, the charming Mackinac Island stands out as America’s Coolcation Destination.

Its position above the 45th parallel and proximity to the Great Lakes offer cooler temperatures in the summer (daily highs in the 60s and 70s and nightly lows in 50s) and will continue to do so in the years to come.

Visitors can take a boat tour around the island, parasail above Lake Huron, relax on a horse-drawn carriage tour (fun fact: motorized vehicles have been banned on the island for 125 years!), wade in the refreshing waters, or dine al fresco while enjoying the cool island breeze.
