Fantasy Island

2 02 2008

There is an Island off the northen part of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula called Mackinac Island. This island has a lot of history. It has been a vacation destination since the 19th Century and it is where the famous Grans Hotel is located. You where they filmed that movie “Somewhere in Time“. Of course I had to see the movie before going.

 There are no cars allowed on the island, there are horse drawn carriages adn lots of bicycles. There are a ton of little inns and other places to stay.

The first time I went there was in the Spring, definetly is the best time to go. We stayed in a small beach hotel in Mackinac City (a considerably cheaper way to go) we enjoyed the activities in town that night and the next day aremed with our bicycles, we took the ferry to the island.

It is such a beautiful place, very picturesque. It has lots of natural beauty and old houses. Check out pictures here. Iam not selling, they are not mine.

We where able to ride most of the island in one day, taking into consideration stopping and that neither one of us was in the best shape. I loved to go in the Spring because the flowers were blooming, walking or riding I often had to stop to take in the wonderful aromas of the flowers, and the colorful scenery. I had the best time there.

I have to warn you about something though, there is also the “aroma” of horse poop, even though the pick it up frecuently, you are going to feel it in some places. I think it is more noticeable in the summer. Sorry, I had to go there.
