For centuries Mackinac Island has been the social, economic, and cultural hub of the Great Lakes. Its location is placed at the Straits of Mackinaw between Lakes Michigan and Huron and a short distance from the St Mary’s river and Lake Superior.
The focal point is the Grand Hotel. Its large front porch, adorned with red geraniums, is obvious from the ferry ride from the mainland. It was the location for the film Somewhere in Time. Filmed in 1980, it stars Jane Seymour, Christopher Reeve, and Christopher Plummer. The Grand’s porch, at 660 feet, is the largest in the world.
