The Mackinac Bridge is located on Interstate 75 in northern Michigan at the Straits of Mackinac. The iconic bridge connects Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas. Mackinaw City is located at the south end of the bridge, while St. Ignace is located at the north end.
Area attractions include the fort grounds at Fort Michilimackinac in Mackinaw City, designated a National Historic landmark in 1960, and camping and recreational opportunities on both sides of the bridge.
The Mackinac Bridge Authority opened an eight-acre Bridge View Park on June 12, 2002. The park, on the north side of the bridge, is a spectacular place to view and photograph the "Mighty Mac."
