We made a trip up to Mackinac Michigan and rode the Shepler's Ferry over to Mackinac Island in June/July 2010. It was a great time with beautiful weather to visit the wonderful Island on Lake Huron.

Mackinac Island throws you back in time sort of because motorized vehicles have been prohibited on the island since 1898, with the exception of snowmobiles during winter, emergency vehicles, and service vehicles. So travel on the island is either by foot, bicycle, or horse-drawn carriage.

A little more on the island:
Mackinac Island (pronounced /ˈmækɨnɔː/ MAK-in-aw) is a city in Mackinac County in the U.S. state of Michigan. At the 2000 census, the city had a permanent population of 523, although there are thousands more seasonal workers and tourists during the summer months. Mackinac Island is about 8 miles (13 km) in circumference and 3.8 square miles (9.8 km) in total area. The island can be reached by private boat, by ferry, by small aircraft, and in the winter, by snowmobile. Mackinac Island was formed as the glaciers of the last ice age began to melt around 13,000 BC.
