St-Ignace is located in the heart of one of Michigan's most visited tourist spots - the Straits of Mackinac. This small town is situated between Salt St. Marie and Mackinaw City along Interstate 75 near Mackinaw Island. It's a town filled with history and charm, and is the third oldest city in the United States, founded by Father Maquette in 1671. St. Ignace offers shopping, restaurants and sightseeing along the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. All types of water sports and beach activities are available, and lots of hiking opportunities, including Hiawatha Trail that spans almost the entire County of Mackinac. Play golf; enjoy fishing, hunting, biking or camping. If winter sports are your thing, St. Ignace has both downhill and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding and snowboarding. Step back in time as you take the ferry to beautiful Mackinaw Island, an island that is 80 percent State Park where cars are not allowed. Enjoy the Victorian architecture and visit the island's shops, restaurants, art galleries and grand hotels of yesteryear. Other attractions near St. Ignace include the Mackinac Bridge, which is an engineering wonder that connects Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas, fall color tours and the nearby Kewadin Shores Casino.

St Ignace Weather & Climate

Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula enjoys moderate summers and cold winters. For decades, visitors have been coming to this area to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cooling effect of the lake breezes. The Lakes affect all areas of the weather, and summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the Lakes chill the air near the earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. In winter, the area becomes a wonderland of ice and snow, with an average of between 40-70 inches of snow, depending on location. Rainfall in upper Michigan is generally around 30 inches per year, with occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. Autumn is sunny with mild days and cool nights - too cold for swimming, but just right for other activities such as fall color tours, antiquing, golfing, and exploring the lake-studded countryside.
