Here are a few pics from our visit to Mackinac Island - pronounced "Mack-in-aw."
The entire island is free from motorized vehicles. A town ordinance passed in 1898 banning horseless carriages is still in effect. All passengers and freight move by horse-drawn wagons. There's even a wheelchair accessible horse drawn taxi.
1)The longest porch in the world at the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island.
2)A view from the dock of several of the island's "summer cottages."
3)A view of the harbor from Fort Mackinac. We're in there somewhere, just look for wooden masts.
4)The view from the Governor's summer mansion. Note the Mackinac Straits Bridge in the background.
