The rest of the nation is being reminded of something that we have always known.  Michigan is full of fantastic vacation destinations.

Mackinac Island's Grand Hotel is getting national recognition.  Travel + Leisure magazine has named the Grand Hotel as one of the best all-inclusive resorts in the United States.

When you think all-inclusive resort, you think island.  But Jamaica and the Caribbean is more likely to be top-of-mind than Mackinac Island.  Travel + Leisure says it's really just about getting-away-from-it-all, they explain:

The best all-inclusive resorts offer a slew of activities in picturesque, get-away-from-it-all settings. Each has its own personality, from a luxurious ranch in Colorado, where guests can follow up a horseback ride with a soak in a private Jacuzzi, to the summer-camp vibe at affordable lakeside cabins in Minnesota.

Travel + Leisure discusses the Grand Hotel:

This colonnaded 19th-century summer resort, complete with lawn games and after-dinner dancing, is majestically set on a bluff overlooking Lake Huron. Every couple of years, the legendary 1887 Grand Hotel unveils an addition, such as the Gate House restaurant, where gentlemen can finally dine sans coat and tie.

Is the Grand Hotel one of the best?
