Sitting on the shores of the great Lake Huron and enclosed in greenery, the beauty of St. Ignace comes from its proximity to the beautiful natural landscapes which surround the city. It’s no surprise that some of the best things to do in our city involve the great outdoors! Here are our picks for the best outdoor attractions to check out on your visit.

Castle Rock

If you really want to see the city of St Ignace, there’s no better place to do it than from the top of Castle Rock. Rising 195 feet above the water, this lookout offers astonishing scenic views of the city. Time to put your camera in landscape mode! On your way back, stop into the Castle Rock Gift Shop to check out some unique local treasures.

Straits State Park

This beautiful and lush state park makes it the perfect destination for a family day trip. Inside Straits State Park you’ll find playgrounds, picnic areas, and hiking trails. It’s also one of the best places in the city to view one of the most famous city landmarks – the mighty Mackinac Bridge.

Deer Ranch

Have you dreamed of meeting a real-life Bambi? There’s a good chance you’ll get pretty close at the Deer Ranch. The ranch offers visitors the opportunity to feed and interact with dozens of Michigan Whitetail Deer. Another awesome activity for families visiting St. Ignace. Get ready for a cuteness explosion!
