The Grand Life is a balance of everything good for your mind and body. It’s things like healthy food, exercise, activities — even taking a moment to enjoy a Mackinac Island sunset from a rocking chair on Grand Hotel’s front porch.
Grand Hotel is proud to partner with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan to help you live the Grand Life. While visiting the hotel, look for healthy choices marked with the Live Healthy Live Grand symbol . You’ll find it on healthy menu choices created by Grand Hotel Executive Chef Hans Burtscher; at exercise and healthy activity locations at Grand Hotel and around Mackinac Island; and at places where you can relax and take a moment to unwind.
To help our guests make living the Grand Life a habit after leaving the island, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Grand Hotel have created a Live Healthy Live Grand Planner. It includes delicious and healthy recipes created by Chef Hans; fun and relaxing stress management suggestions; a daily food log; and interesting facts about Grand Hotel and Mackinac Island. Live Healthy Live Grand Planners are available in all guest rooms or by request at the Concierge desk in the Parlor.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is a sponsor of the Old Fashioned Mackinac Fourth of July Celebration, a perfect tradition for the entire family.
Children 11 and under make sure to stop by the reservations desk! What a better way to start healthy habits than to make good habits when you are young. There are so many fun activities at Grand Hotel and around Mackinac that we want to help our youngest guests get out and explore. If you have a child 11 years or younger visiting this season make sure to pick up the activity card at check-in from the reservations staff. You can earn a complimentary scoop of Summer Celebration ice cream.
