We are planning to stop at Mackinac Island on our way from Traverse City to Munising on the 4th of July. If possible we would like to take the 10am Might Mac ferry. Here are my questions:
1.) Which is better to catch the ferry: St. Ignace or Mackinaw City?
2.) Approximately how long is the drive? Is googlemaps pretty accurate on their time estimates? It gives an estimated time of 2 hours 9 minutes from the Cherry Tree.
3.) Should I pre-purchase ferry tickets seeing that it is July 4th? Are the tickets time specific?
4.) Will rental bikes on the island be hard to come by considering the holiday?
