I first came here as a kid and LOVED IT! It's this beautiful spot in Lake Huron set back in time. Your only form of transportation is by horse and buggy, bicycle or on foot. Trails and woods cover most of the island, which makes it a great place for a hike.
It is also the location of Fort Mackinac, founded in 1780. It's a British-built on the island's bluffs high above the Straits of Mackinac.
You'll definitely need a full day to explore the island and feel satisfied if not more. If you want to bike the interior of the island, go kayaking, visit museums and the fort or anything else, you'll need three days!
