Day 3 St. Ignace, MI

We take the Algoma Central Train which leaves at 8:00 a.m. for our all day “Agawa Canyon Excursion”. Soon we will be up in the hills which surround the city, looking down on the Algoma Steel Mills, the International Bridge and upper St. Mary’s River. When we reach the mighty Montreal River we cross via a trestle which will give you a thrill to long remember. Then the train starts its descent of over 500 feet in 12 miles to reach the floor of the famous canyon. We cross the winding Agawa River and soon see the picturesque Bridal Veil Falls before stopping at Canyon Park. Here we have time to explore the Canyon floor, or relax at a picnic table. We then reboard the train for our trip back to Sault Ste. Marie. We board our motor coach and cross the International Bridge to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan where we join I-75 and travel south to St. Ignace for a 2 night stay. (B,L)

Day 4 St. Ignace, MI

This morning our motor coach will transfer our group to the pier to board the ferry to Mackinac Island. The Island knows no motorized vehicles, just bicycles and horse drawn carriages. We begin our visit with a horse drawn carriage ride, with a driver/guide that provides some insight into life on the island. We end our tour at the magnificent Grand Hotel. You will have time to explore the hotel as we enjoy the famous Grand Luncheon Buffet, featuring hot and cold entrees, seafood, salad, fresh fruit, cheeses, meats and pastries. With the ferry’s running on a regular schedule, you can choose your own time to return to the mainland so you will have time to browse in the quaint shops or stroll the quiet tree lined streets. Tonight, we return to our beautiful resort in St. Ignace. (B,L)

Day 5 Home

Breakfast included at our hotel, before we bid farewell to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and travel homeward via Port Huron and Sarnia with an evening arrival home. (B)
