Getaway Guide: Weekend Trip To Mackinac IslandThere are few places in the United States that offer the ambiance of times gone by like Mackinac Island. Sitting six miles into Lake Huron from the coast of Mackinaw City, this magical place takes you back to a time before automobiles and into a world of horse-drawn carriages, beautiful sunsets and the feeling of being on an island paradise, which to be honest, you are. There are a lot of the standard places to go and things to do on the island, but these will give you a whole new view of the island.
