The grand experience - Mackinac Island Trip

  • Look for more information in January 2024.

Grand Experience

Enjoy the best of Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel. All-inclusive, discount travel package for travelers ages 50+.

A Memorable Trip Back in Time

The Mackinac Island “Grand Experience” is a unique opportunity to stay at one of the finest and most historic hotel properties in America. Step back in time and experience a way of life that has all but disappeared. Experience the charm of a horse-drawn carriage, relax in the parlor each afternoon for high tea, or enjoy a game of bocce in the lush surroundings of the tea garden. Inside, explore the Grand Hotel with its vast array of antiques, art, and other surprises.

Outside, explore the beauty nature provides. A favorite among many visitors is the peaceful setting of the “famous” front porch where you can view the Mackinac Bridge and the straits of Mackinac. Canton Club 55+ is able to offer this special “bucket-list” opportunity through its affiliation with mParks (Michigan Recreation and Parks Association). The Mackinac Island Grand Experience is for individuals 50 years or older; spouses, sons, daughters, and caregivers under 50 are welcome.
