Employment Opportunities

Mackinac Island, Michigan

If being a part of an amazing summer adventure sounds intriguing, consider Mackinac Island! Your season on Mackinac Island could look like this!

Mackinac Island is a unique place located between Michigan’s rugged upper and lower peninsulas where Lake Huron and Lake Michigan meet. There are no motor vehicles on the Island, which is accessible only by ferry, plane and private watercraft.

No motor vehicles mean no rush hour, no commute and little pollution. Leave a big portion of your carbon footprint on the mainland. Walk or ride your bike to get around, or hop on a horse-drawn carriage. When you are not trapped in a car you have an opportunity to appreciate the things around you, like the beautiful lake views, and gorgeous trees that make up Mackinac Island State Park. Things slow down, you suddenly have a chance to say hello to those you pass on your way to work or to the market. Mackinac Island has a sense of community that simply won’t be found anywhere else. You can be in the woods on a secluded trail in less than ten minutes after work. You can have a rock beach all to yourself if you head a mile out of town on a bike. Mackinac Island is 80% state park and it is here for all of us to share.
