Decent place to stop

Nice shops. My son loves the Enchanted Knights shop and that is honestly the only reason we go every year. The painted pavement is slippery in the rain and my husband nearly fell... read more

Between my first visit to Mackinaw City in 2011 and my second in 2013, it was apparent Mackinaw Crossings had fallen on hard times, and that decline only seems to have accelerated since then. During my third visit in 2016 I was shocked to see how many stores were now vacant, and of those that remained, how many were merely... More

Mackinaw Crossing is a beautiful development. However, it needs more businesses. There are empty stores, which is sad. Mostly there needs to be more traffic. Tourists go to Mackinac Island and don't bother to check out Mackinaw City, which is not cool.

Most businesses owned or employ seasonal foreign help....the town has lost its local connection. Use to be a great place to visit but I think our times there sadly have come to an end.

I remember when the Crossings opened with "nice" shops. There seems to be a lot of "junk" there now. My husband used the restroom and said it was "disgusting". Dirty and in bad repair. Unforgivable in a tourist town!!

I have been visiting Mackinaw City for several years. I used to really like the crossings, but now we just make a quick walk thru and then we are done with it. Our favorite shop is Strait To The Pantry. Totally awesome shop and the folks who run it are A+!! They have held my items for me so I... More

This was a fun shopping experience when visiting Mackinaw City when it opened years ago. Over the years many different stores have come and gone and currently it sits with several empty buildings and can't seem to keep stores for long. The stores that are there are your typical tourist trap souvenir shops that keep the kids happy but the... More

Nice shops. My son loves the Enchanted Knights shop and that is honestly the only reason we go every year. The painted pavement is slippery in the rain and my husband nearly fell which was scary. We used to love the Mackinaw Outfitters store but now it is a giant junk store.

There were many little shops and restaurants to wander into and just look around. The people in each were friendly and informative. There were tables to sit at while noshing. Great way to spend an afternoon. There are some shops closed,but still plenty to visit.

When we travel to Mackinac Island every summer, we always stop in the city, and take a walk around Mackinaw Crossings. It seem every year it gets a little more run down. Definitely in need of some tlc. Many empty spaces, and has lost a lot of it's charm.

We have been vacationing to the straits and the Mackinaw City area for more than 30 yrs. It used to be a very busy city with many unique shops and restaurants. Even though it was a tourist town it was still immensely fun and entertaining. Now it's become a ghost town if you will. Most of the shops have closed... More
