    Mystery Spot

    Ahhh, the Mystery Spot... those darn signs just draw you in. You just HAVE to find out what the mystery is. You'll probably be disappointed. This really is just a tourist trap - they draw you in, charge you way more than you should pay, then disappoint you with a cheesy tour.

    Unique Suggestions: It can be fun if you're prepared for the cheesiness and willing to waste money. They do have mini golf there and a maze. Those can be kind of fun.

    Fun Alternatives: If you can stand to go on in life not knowing the mystery, I would suggest checking out some of the beautiful parks and views available in St. Ignace. There are some nice roadside places to have a picnic, and it gives you a whole other viewpoint of the bridge.

    Supposed to be a gravity defying wonder built on an ore mine. The tour guide takes you through 3 irregular built rooms and demonstrates how you can stand on tables at an odd angle without falling, sit in a chair and not be able to stand up, how a perfectly level beam is harder to walk on in one direction. The tour took all of 15 minutes and left our whole group feeling ripped off. It is not worth the price of admission and anyone with half a brain will not be amazed by this place. It is located across the Mackinaw Bridge so really a rip off considering you pay 5 bucks to go over the bridge to get there. (round trip)

    Unique Suggestions: Their gift shop is reasonably priced and has alot of the same stuff you would find in Mackinaw City for a couple dollars more. So if you need your standard souviener items, you could check in here.

    Fun Alternatives: Stay in Mackinaw city and go try the Amazeing Mirror Maze. We had much more fun there! Kids will love getting lost in there!
