It was my third time to Michigan’s Mackinac Island last month, and this visit was just as inspiring and exciting as the last two. I have two favorite pastimes there that I spent the majority of my time enjoying on this trip – sitting on the rocking chairs atop the Grand Hotel’s 660-foot-long porch, and renting a bicycle along the scenic shoreline road circling the island. From both vantage points, the views of scintillating deep blue and Caribbean-like green hues of Lake Huron are worth every effort and dollar it takes to return to Mackinac Island.
And needless to say, the five-course dinners in the Grand Hotel’s main dining room were simply fabulous, and popping in and out of the fudge shops on Main Street with their tasty rich chocolate samples was a real treat as well.
During my visit two years ago, I spent a lot more time exploring the island. Here’s my post from that trip.
AND, I wrote a story for Coast to Coast (RV) Magazine that was published last year (P. 16).
