Here is a little glimpse of what life is like on Mackinac Island. Me and my husband stayed on the island for 4 days last week and can't wait to go back again next year! It is a resort area located in Lake Huron at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac, between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. The only way to get to the island is by ferry. Once there, the only transportation is walking, horse carriage, or bicycles. If you want to go around the island it is about 8 miles and well worth doing. We went around three different times. If you have never been there before it is definitely worth the visit!
