Which hotel has the world’s largest porch?
If you guessed Grand Hotel (1886) in Mackinac Island, Michigan, you guessed correctly!
Grand Hotel's front porch is the longest in the world at some 660 feet in length, overlooking a vast Tea Garden and the resort-scale Esther Williams swimming pool. When it opened in 1887, the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island was established as a summer retreat for vacationers who arrived by lake steamer from Chicago, Erie, Montreal, and Detroit, and by rail from across the continent. The property's 600-foot front porch soon became the principal meeting place for all of Mackinac Island, a promenade and "Flirtation Walk" for island romantics.
