I have not been to Mackinac Island in many years since I was youth aged. It'll be a first time visit for my spouse. I love the charm of the island and no cars. I hope to return in 2015 around our anniversary time of late August. I'm also reading the other posts in this forum to get ideas as well but appreciate relevant info. to our trip as well.
Some places we plan on going:
butterfly house (original one)
tea at the Grand Hotel
tour via horse carriage ride (the group one is fine)
maybe biking the island (tips on that appreciated)
visit the Fort
Any recommendations concerning the above or other would be appreciated. Secondly lodging. We're open to any suggestions we aren't looking to spend more than $150/night, preferrably less if possible. I'll peruse the TA info. on lodging as well as the websites but I'm looking for personal thoughts and info. in addition to that.
Any other don't misses are appreciated as well as general tips about touring the island. I would imagine we'd stay for two nights, three days at most. Thanks for any/all input. Meanwhile I'll peruse the online links and suggestions in addition to the personal sharing input gathered here in this post. Thanks for your time.Edited: 03 March 2014, 17:12
