2017 Michigan Trip: Visiting the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island, Michigan – Upper Peninsula

While on our trip to Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, we took a ride from Muskallonge State Park over to St Ignace. From there we caught a ferry for a ride over to Mackinac (pronounced Mackinaw) Island. You may remember some of the scenery if you ever saw the 1980 movie “Somewhere in Time” with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. There is a lot to see on the island. Lot of shops and restaurants. The best way to get around is by bicycle. You can bring your own or rent one on the island. There are also horse drawn carriages that you can rent. There are no motorized vehicles on the island. Be sure to stop by one of the many fudge shops and become a fudgie. Fudgie’s are what they call tourists because they buy and eat a lot of fudge.
