Mackinac Island named No. 1 summer travel destination by USA Today readers

Must read


On National Travel and Tourism Week, it is no surprise Mackinac Island is garnering yet another honor.

The island has been named the No. 1 best summer travel destination in USA Today’s 2024 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards.

“Between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas, you’ll find Mackinac Island, where you’ll ride on horse-drawn carriages along car-free roads, observe fudge being made (and then sample it), and tour the historic Fort Mackinac,” the award says. “This Lake Huron-based continental island is also home to Mackinac Island State Park, where you can hike, bike, kayak, and take photos of the local natural beauty, including the stunning limestone Arch Rock.”

The USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards highlight the very best in travel, food + drink and lifestyle. Every week, USA TODAY 10Best invites a panel of industry experts to nominate their favorite points of interest and attractions across a wide range of categories. 10Best editors then vet these nominations and select a final set of nominees to be presented to the voting public for a period of four weeks.
