Travel: Mackinac Island, MI

Amazing. Beautiful. Peaceful.
I spent the last week with my Grandmother and Husband touring Michigan.
We covered a lot of ground in a few days, but what a step back in time Mackinac Island was.

The weather was perfect, truly perfect.
We drove up from the Detroit area and took the 1pm ferry from Mackinac City to Mackinac Island.
Boy, can that ferry boat move. 16 minutes flat.

As soon as we landed, you felt like you were somewhere else.
No cars, only horses or bikes to transport you.

We stayed at a nice place called Mission Point.
The views were spectacular.

A little shopping, some sightseeing and a dinner, we rested up for another on the go day.


  1. LOVE Mackinac....have been 3 times, last time was this summer. I think it's the most beautiful place in the world :) We get to stay at the Grand Hotel when we go, thanks to dh's company.

    Looks like fall is beautiful there! Is it crowded this time of year?

  2. Welcome to Mackinac!
    You've picked the perfect time to visit...
    also spring ...during Lilac time, also amazing.
    We usually hit the Island at least once a year.
    Nothing quite like it.
    Nice to meet you and your fun blog!
    Happy travels,,,
    Stop over when your home again and visiting!

  4. Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit!

  5. Cindy, we arrived mid week so it wasn't too crowded, but it did have lots of people roaming around. The hotels and BBs were almost all full. Lots of no vacancy signs. I loved it.
