The fall season is a perfect time to explore Michigan, especially with the fall colors on the way. Why not take it all in while kicking back at a gem of a resort in a beautiful waterfront setting that's only 4-ish hours away? Our friends at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island have everything you need to do that and more. 

When you take off to Mackinac Island, there are a few things that will most likely happen. For instance, you will probably make a couple of stops to refuel, get some fresh air and stretch your legs. One stop that is popular while heading up north is Birch Run, where you can grab a quick bite to eat at Tony's Restaurant and get a bacon-filled meal or go shopping at the outlet mall. 

Another must is a ferry ride to the island. We boarded Shepler's Ferry for a beautiful ride across the Straits of Mackinac. When you arrive on the island you can enjoy a short horse and carriage ride to Mission Point Resort, a family-owned and pet-friendly hotel where you can experience all the best things Mackinac Island has to offer: From comfortable rooms that are decorated with Michigan-made products, to enjoying dinner and drinks at one of the three restaurants on-site, and being greeted by Nick, the in-house dog. 

Mission Point Resort is offering hotel packages for the fall, whether it's for romance or just a weekend get-away.
