Family owned and operated and everyone was incredibly nice and accommodating. There were great photo ops and a lot of interesting information. We live in the area and still learned some things and found it worthwhile.

We had free time one evening during a visit to Mackinaw City, so opted for the sunset tour. Because it was so special, we made sure we again did an Ugly Anne tour - this time the historic tour.

If you are traveling from Illinois, take interstate 75 north to Mackinaw City. Located at 229 S Huron Ave. Look for the parasailing sign and its right next to it. Enjoy
