Mackinac Island

If you haven't ever been to Mackinac Island,MI, I want to encourage you to go someday. It is one of my favorite places to visit. There is something magical about it. There are no cars allowed...the only mode of transportation being horses or bicycles. There are old hotels there, still in operation. The most famous of those is the Grand Hotel, which is steeped in history. The island is riddled with Fudge shops, for which they are well-known. As you stroll through the streets, the delicious aroma of fudge wafts through the air. This is a welcome change from the horsey piles that you sometimes have to dodge here and there! There is a multitude of fun, albiet tacky, t-shirt shops to take home a memory of your time at Mackinac. It's a nice place to take the family, ride bikes, the ferry, and let your kids see what life was like before cars.

I love Mackinac Island. It's like taking a break from the stresses of real life and going back in time.
