Visit Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan

Mackinac Island is a special place in Northern Michigan. Not only is in rich in history as both a place where fur trading took place and where a fort was built to protect nearby territories, but it is filled with beauty and lots of things to do.

There are not many places in the U.S. that are as gorgeous as Mackinac Island . It’s stunning: a tortoise shaped island surrounded by the aqua blue waters of Lake Huron. The seven-mile long road that goes around the island is a favorite of bike riders and walkers. Vehicles are not permitted on Mackinac Island so transportation takes place by horse drawn carriages and bicycles.

The famous Grand Hotel sits on the bluff overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge. Many movies have been filmed at the Grand Hotel and on Mackinac Island including “This Time for Keeps” and “Somewhere in Time.”
