In case you haven’t noticed, I love Mackinac Island. As soon as I step off the ferry, I feel like I’m in a movie. Not in a fake way, though there’s that too, but in a lost, fun, magical way. It feels like taking a step back to the Victorian Era, and there’s hardly anything to yank me away from that fantasy. There are horses, horse-drawn carriages, great old buildings, Victorian homes, old churches, and Fort Mackinac that was used during the War of 1812.
Mackinac Island is a Michigan State Park, and a huge tourist draw. The food was a little high priced, but for the most part, the Island is pretty affordable. You could stay the night at one of the gorgeous hotels for around $100. Heck, even the ATM fee was only $2, which is about average where I live.
You can rent a horse, or rent bikes to get around. But the island is small, so we walked everywhere we wanted to go.
