A visit to Mackinac Island

Earlier this week, a friend from Delaware and I spent a couprle of days on Mackinac Island, which has been voted the Best Island in the Continental U.S. by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

I had been before, but my friend had not. We decided to tour the Island by carriage, which was great fun (and educational). The first half of the tour, on a carriage pulled by a two-horse team–took us through the town, past the Grand Hotel and to a little village where we visited the carriage museum.

Then we switched to a three-horse team and continued uphill through the state park and on to Arch Rock.

We were surprised at the beautiful flowers and gardens around the island–given it is the end of September.

      It is a very peaceful place, especially after the last ferry leaves for the evening. No cars and very few people. It is lovely, and I highly recommend. Thanks for stopping by.
