Exploring Mackinac Island with no motorized vehicles was like taking a step back in time. Situated just off shore from Mackinaw City and St. Ignace, Michigan, Mackinac Island is a must see. Horse drawn buggy taxi rides and rental bikes are the only transportation options! We got lucky and landed on the island during the annual Lilac Festival. The cutest parade in the cutest little island town ever! And we try not to focus on our kids wrestling at The Grand Hotel!
Today was a day we’ve been looking forward to for a long time! We ventured out to Mackinac Island by ferry. This island is so unique as there are no motorized vehicles allowed so everyone gets around by bicycle or horse taxis. We just happened to land there during the Lilac Festival and were surprised by a parade upon arrival. That meant our carriage tour that we prepaid was not going to happen, but we made the best of it. And totally fell in love with this place!
