Beautiful Views of The bridge and island

Mackinac Island is located off a Pennisula by Lake Huron-almost to Canada! We visited in July which even that time of year it is kind of cool there. We stayed in a little cabin off the island. We stayed in Mackinaw City and then took the ferry to the island. We played miniature golf in the city and visited various historic lighthouses. Here is a picture of the Mackinaw bridge (built in 1957) that connects Michigan and Wisconsin. You can spend a lot of money here easily-not a cheap place to vacation.

View of the Island

Beautiful homes are on the island surrounded by hotels, restaurants and a wonderful island view as well as great hiking trails. We spent the day hiking and relaxing by the water. Be prepared to spend a lot on food there as it is a tourist hot spot. Here are some pictures from the Ferry.

On the Island

Beautiful rock formations, wooded hiking trails, and water. You can rent bikes on the island which is a great way to get around. There are horse carriage rides. Lots of fancy hotels, tourist shops and places to eat as well.
