Mackinac Island Michigan... an island destination in the middle of the country

Recommended Posts

I LOVE Mackinaw! My cousin got married there a little over a year ago and it was a lovely event. It also had always been my "dream" place to get married but now that my cousin did it I'm planning a DW for another favorite-- puerto vallarta.

 

I would highly recommend getting married on Mackinaw!

The Island (as us locals call it) is really a great place. I had the pleasure of growing up in the Upper Peninsula about 16 nautical miles from there. We would drive our boats to the Island and hang out all the time. After college, we all moved away to get jobs but my best friend had a wedding at the Grand a few years ago. She held it in October and we had almost the WHOLE island to ourselves. It was a very unique experience, even for a local.

 

The Island prohibits cars, and the only ones you might see are the fire crew and ambulance. Everything else is horse drawn carriage or bicycles. Okay, well we cheat in the winter and drive snowmobiles but that's about it. The clip clop of horse feet striking the pavement on the way back to your condo or hotel after a night's worth of festivities, catching glimpses of the Bridge and the northern lights shimmering across the sky is priceless. If you're looking for a remote location without having to step foot out of the country, you have found your spot.

 

Going home in 3 months for the 4th of July - can't wait!

I used to spend alot of time in in Cadillac and Traverse City , we'd take day trips up to Mackinac. It's PERFECT there in June/July for weather.

 

I'm heading up to Traverse City July 3, I might take my fiance up there one day :)
