M is for Mackinac Island.

One of my very favorite places to vacation is Mackinac Island. It is beautiful, it reminds me of the past because there are no motorized vehicles and it is full of history. I have been there three times with the last time being 2012. It was a great trip that my mom, dad, sister and I took. I also got to meet two very special online friends there so that made it even more special.
 The first thing that is exciting is taking a ferry over to the Island...the view is spectacular although it can be a bit chilly if you are not in the covered part. Here are some pictures while on the ferry. These were on the way back because it was warmer so my sister and I sat up where it was open.
The Mackinac Bridge which is 5 miles long and connects the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan. My sister did not like driving over it but thought it was neat from the ferry.
 The Grand Hotel
 Fort Mackinac
Some beautiful houses that are on the Island, love the flowers.

This is a stone church on the Island

Our Ride that took us around the Island and to my favorite scenery place Arch Rock

Then we got on another taxi and headed to the Grand Hotel for lunch...it was beautiful...the food was ok..I am more of a hamburger kind of girl though! LOL

Yes it is a great place to take a step back in time and vacation.

Hi Cindi,
My goal next year is to go to Mackinac Island while we are in MI. I have longingly looked at it as we have headed north to Boyne. But this next year when we go to see family it will be me going there. Your photos sealed the deal!
Thanks for sharing!
