Ever want to just get away from the hustle and bustle? Get away from traffic? Maybe escape to an island somewhere? Sounds too good to be true. But it is true.
Pack up the family for your escape on a Mackinac Island Family Vacation. Leave the car behind but bring your sense of adventure when you board the Mackinac Island Hydro Jet Ferry. Choose your comfort level in the glass-enclosed cabin, or ride in the open-air as the ferry sprays its spectacular 35 foot rooster tail. Or use your ferry pass to sight see around the island and visit the Mackinac Bridge, one of the world’s leading suspension bridges spanning the straits of Mackinac.
As soon as you arrive at the island, you’ll be struck by what’s missing. Motor cars. That’s right. Travel on the island is by horse-drawn carriage, or you can rent a bicycle, roller skates, or saddle horse. You’ll see the only US Hwy that has no motorized traffic. The family vacation package includes a carriage tour, which begins at the Surrey Hills Carriage Museum, then past all the notable landmarks of the island. Like Arch Rock, a natural limestone arch 146 ft. above ground.
Before returning you to your lodging, you’ll visit the Wings of Mackincac Tropical Butterfly Conservatory a beautiful glass-enclosed atrium filled with carefully tended botanicals and free-flying butterflies from around the world.
