Mackinac Island

Separating Lake Michigan from Lake Huron, the gorgeous island Mackinac has long been a popular tourist destination. The island is noted for its myriad of extravagant Victorian-era buildings like the Grand Hotel.

Around the ferry port, visitors can find historic shops, restaurants, and famous fudge. In addition, it has plenty of nature to explore, with hiking, biking, and horse-drawn buggy rides among those popular activities.

Although it is car-free, Mackinac Island is car-free but can get very crowded at weekends and during the summer months. To get a natural feel for the island, it is worthwhile staying in one of its historical inns or cozy BnBs.
