Our Michigan tour began in Holland. I dropped my son and his friend off at camp for the week then took my girls and headed up to Mackinac Island. One of my sisters live in Detroit so she went to Mackinac with us. It has been 20 years since I have been to Mackinac and it is just as fun as I remembered. You leave your car on the main land then take the ferry to the Island. It really is a picturesque place. We swam in Lake Huron, took a horse and carriage ride, rode bikes around the island and of coarse the #1 thing to do on the island... bought fudge. I think the entire state of Michigan has a thing for fudge. There are 17 fudge shops on Mackinac Island, this is an 8 mile island and 80% of it is an undeveloped state park, that a lot of fudge! It was a great week and I am so glad we decided to head "Up North"


  1. That looks like so much fun! Your hotel is gorgeous!
