07:00 PM To 08:15 PM
Location: Fort Mackinac, Mackinac Island
See the flash of the fire when Fort Mackinac has rifle and cannon firings in the evening. Sunsets from Fort Mackinac are truly spectacular, and what better way to watch the sun set over the Mackinac Bridge than a celebratory cannon shot to go with it. Enjoy the Soldier's Barracks, shopping at Sutler's Store and the freedom to roam the fort and take in evening views that not many people get to experience.
