    The people of St. Ignace have a celebrated history of hospitality, which you'll find in the shops, restaurants and hotels of our community. See and hear the story of our ancestors on display at a variety of local museums and landmarks. From high atop Castle Rock, to the water's edge on the shores of Lake Huron and Lake Michigan, St. Ignace's landscape tells a story of Michigan that cannot be discovered anywhere else.

    St. Ignace is also the perfect launch point for a trip to Mackinac Island, where the everyday cares of traffic and deadlines melt away aboard a horse-drawn carriage or bicycle built for two. With multiple ferry services and a multitude of departure times, it's always convenient to escape to the island for the day and return to beautiful St. Ignace each night.

    No matter your taste, no matter your budget, come and see why everyone agrees: it's better above the bridge.
