Mackinac Island Travel Tips
Enjoy the Horses by Reserving Mackinac Island Vacation Rentals
If you love horses, then Mackinac Island is the place for you. Mackinac Island's culture is centered on the breeding of horses and because of this, there are horse carriages available throughout the year so you can go for a ride and enjoy the amazing scenery at a slow pace. Horse-taxis are available to take you wherever you need to go just by going by the taxi office on Main Street and calling for one. What a quaint way to get around town—you'll feel like you've been transported to the 19th century!
Nature Abounds at Mackinac Island
To truly enjoy your vacation to Mackinac Island, lodging can be found in many places including hotels, but you won't really understand the beautiful nature of Mackinac Island by staying in a cold, cookie-cutter hotel room. Instead, look into renting out a Mackinac Island vacation home. These homes are wonderful because they are owned by real people who have added their personal touch to the décor and so they have that "lived-in" feel to them. They are also much roomier than a one-room hotel room, and include full kitchens, multiple bedrooms, and a large living area.
Amazing Area You Don't Want to Miss
Mackinac Island is truly a unique area. In addition to the horse-drawn taxis, you'll also find bicycle-drawn taxis to take you around town. A can't-miss is the Wings of Mackinac Butterfly Conservatory where you can see butterflies as they fly around lush plants. Butterflies are a rare sight in real life, but here, they are plentiful and are beautiful to see. Also found in the area are golfing, hiking, and the Stuart House Museum. And at the end of a wonderful, but exhausting, day, you can relax in one of the many Michigan Upper Peninsula lake houses that you have chosen to stay in.
