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.”
Carriage tours around and through the island offer a glimpse of the history and importance of Mackinac Island. Special events takes place such as the Lilac Festival where hundreds of varieties of lilacs are celebrated.
