This is a wonderful trip for anyone to take. We went for the day, took the ferry over. We decided to take the carriage ride, and that’s where we were able to see so many gorgeous homes. Sorry that it seems in some of the photos the top of the houses are missing. Sitting in the carriage, it had fringe hanging down too, I just couldn’t get the whole house in the photo. Next time we go I guess we’ll hike up there so I can take a proper photo. You can take your bicycles with you on the ferry for an extra fee. We didn’t do it, but if you can stay overnight, that’s really the way to go! You will love visiting Mackinac Island!
