  1. Mackinac Island is awesome. We used to go every summer when I was a kid. I’d ride around in the back if my mom’s bike until I was old enough to rent my own.

  2. we don’t mess with Mackinac island around here, they like the simple life…the only permanent motor vehicles on the island are search/rescue/emergency…beautiful area tho 👍
