Event Description:

This fall, Saginaw County Parks & Recreation and City of Midland Parks Department is offering area residents a unique opportunity to travel to Mackinac Island in Grand style! Saginaw County Parks & Recreation and City of Midland Parks Department’s “Grand Experience” trip provides exciting programming and events, accommodations at luxurious Grand Hotel, five-course meals, carriage tours around the historic island, discounts at Mackinac shops and more!

The Grand Experience is a travel program for individuals ages 50 and above. Presented in partnership between the Michigan Recreation and Park Association and Grand Hotel, the Grand Experience is provided in communities statewide as an opportunity for residents to enjoy the best of Mackinac Island, at a greatly reduced, all-inclusive rate.

Local park and recreation departments, senior centers and travel groups present the Grand Experience trip in their communities, bringing the benefits of the Grand Hotel partnership directly to residents. Once on the island, Grand Experience staff members provide programs such as bocce tournaments, behind-the-scenes kitchen tours of Grand Hotel, golf tournaments, carriage tours and more! Transportation to the island is provided by the Saginaw County Parks & Recreation and City of Midland Parks Department as well.

The 2012 Grand Experience will take place October 14th through October 16th. To learn more, contact Stephanie Wirtz at 989-790-5280 or email at
