About Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island is a unique place located between Michigan’s rugged Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula where Lake Huron and Lake Michigan meet.  There are no motor vehicles on the Island, which is accessible by only ferry, plane, and private watercraft.  No motor vehicle means no rush hour, no commute, and no pollution.

Leave a big portion of your carbon foot print on the mainland.   Walk or ride your bike to get around.  When you are not trapped in a car you have a chance to see the water and see the trees.  Things slow down, you suddenly have a chance to say hello to people.  Mackinac Island has a sense of community as a direct result of this freedom from cars.

You can be in the woods on a secluded trail in less than ten minutes after work.  You can have a rock beach all to yourself if you head a mile out of town on a bike.  80% of the Island is a State Park and it is here for all of us to share.

If you are a sea kayaker, bring your boat.  The Straits of Mackinac are the real deal.  You would be one of a handful of brave souls who call these waters home.  You would be a pioneer in area where you could go a whole season and see just a few other paddlers.

If you are tired of watching other people have adventures on TV, live your own!

Live it on Mackinac Island!
