Mackinac Island's small Victorian Village overlooks the beautiful Straits of Mackinac connecting Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. The town, founded in the early 1800s, was originally a fur-trading post. For over one hundred years now it has been a popular summer resort.
Visitors to Mackinac enjoy the island's unique natural beauty as well as its many points of historic interest such as Fort Mackinac and Grand Hotel. No automobiles are allowed so visitors and residents travel by either horse-drawn carriages such as this one, or by bicycle.
