My husband and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in November and have been talking about a weekend getaway. Right now we’re looking at driving up to Mackinac City, looking around, spending the night, and then coming back home through Frankenmuth. What’s still open around Mackinac that we can visit at this time of year? Is it worth going, or should we wait to go till the ferries are running again so we can visit the island?
We’re not completely committed to the idea, so I’m also interested in hearing from Dopers about other good places for a weekend getaway. It has to be (a) not too expensive and (b) within a six-hour drive from our house (Fort Wayne, IN area).
Water views are a plus, fine dining isn’t a priority but a decent (doesn’t have to be luxurious but does have to be clean and comfortable) hotel room is.
