Trip to mackinac island….

I always wanted to go to an island…. How beautiful it is….  A piece of land surrounded by water…. Vowwww….

So guys…. Here i am with my awesome experience on Mackinac island….

We know islands are always been an exciting place to visit…. But mackinac island is lot more than that….

Let me share from the beginning….

Before visiting the place you must know 3 things :-

  1. You have to take ferry ride inorder to reach the island and there are options to book the tickets for ferry ride in online….
  2. In my opinion, you must book a hotel nearby the ferry starting point. And also book the hotels as early as you can….
  3. You must know the fact that cars are not allowed in the island…. We can have either bicycle ride or horse ride…

We had booked room in Bay side hotel and it is nearest to the starline ferry point, that made our journey more easy and stress free….

Night ride to the island

We had reached there at evening, so we went for ferry ride to the island at night. At night, there will be less people and the ride seems to be more adventurous at that time. Another thing is the lighting of the Mackinac bridge. The bridge view is beautiful at night. Walking through the streets at night is a different feeling.

So guys if you get chance to go for night ferry ride, then don’t miss it. Just make sure you are ready for the chills with extra layered cloths.

Day time excitements

You can get ferry rides that passes below the bridge and that helps you to capture the beauty of the Mackinac bridge in  your camera.

On reaching the Mackinac island, you can take either bicycle ride or horse ride. The street is also a great treat for our eyes. The buildings are made in such a way that we feel like in a dream world….

There are single bicycles and double bicycles(for 2 persons). We choose the horse carrier ride and that was an amazing experience.

Taste of fudge….


The best fudges in the world are made here…. There are lots of shops where we can take a bite of each type of fudge and we can choose one from them…. We liked the butter flavoured fudge and we bought that….

Ride through the Mackinac bridge….

It was an adventurous ride from mackinaw city to st.ignitious just to cross the bridge and I loved the experience…. We can point out the island on the side ways in long distance from the bridge….


Mackinac island will surely fill your soul with peace…. So it should be in your bucket list for a holiday trip….
