Mackinac Island



Tulips in front of the Grand Hotel

What a view!




biking around the Island













We drove to Mackinac Island this weekend for Memorial Day. This was our first time in Michigan. The drive was a little over 450 miles. We parked in Mackinaw City and took the ferry to the island. We decided to take our bikes along and I am so glad we did. We biked all over the Island. It is a car free Island with only bikes and horses for transportation. We enjoyed allot of exploring, biking, swimming, running and great food. The fudge was so good and we ate more then our share while there. We had really good weather with the high being around 70. What a beautiful place to visit.

It is a beautiful place. Was there as a young child - camping - and remember it.

Great pics.

Wow! What a neat little getaway you had. Looks so pretty. How cool is that that there are no cars. It sure is a good thing you took bikes to get around easier than walking. You always find the neatest places to visit.
