Les Cheneaux Islands
A great lake vacation. More than three centuries ago the explorers and fur traders used this area, protected by the 36 Les Cheneaux Islands, "The Channels", in their travels through the Northern Great Lakes. Today, the sheltered bays, boat houses, sandy beaches, and the natural beauty of the Islands offer four seasons of fun, rest, and relaxation. Hessel and Cedarville (located just 28 miles NE of the Mackinac Bridge) provide a unique area to the vacationer with fishing, boating, kayaking, swimming, hiking, bird watching and snowmobiling.
For your pleasure the area provides casinos, golf courses, marinas, gift shops, restaurants and an array of lodging facilities. Centrally located to area attractions and providing local events such as the Fourth of July festivities, Antique Wooden Boat Show & Festival of Arts and Winter Snowsfest, makes the Les Cheneaux Islands the perfect place to vacation.
