The Real Reason I Love Mackinaw Island

There are so many reasons why I love going to Mackinaw Island in
Northern Michigan. This year I would go on Labor Day Weekend,
Mmm maybe not such a good idea due to the overwhelming crowds,
but nonetheless it was still oozing charm and beauty.

I love walking the streets and admiring the charming houses.


A little lawn candy to admire.

I love discovering new places to stay while traveling. Might have to give
The Cottage Inn a try sometime. They were totally booked so we were
not able to see a room, but the owners were very confident that we would
not be sorry if we stayed with them.


I love this simple idea of putting an old bicycle amongst the flowers
to add more lawn candy.

One of the many things I love about the island is the flowers. Today they
seemed their brightest.


I loved this Harley Davidson Bicycle. Now I could manage that.

St. Anne Parish was built-in 1874 and is one of the oldest Roman Catholic
Parishes in the interior of North America and in 1992 registered as a
Michigan Historical site.



I love walking the streets of Mackinaw. It’s always so full of life.
Riding bicycles around the island is one of the favorites amongst the
visitors. Always fun.


This is one of my favorite places on the island. I love The Carriage
House restaurant in the Hotel Iroquois. It is my tradition to have a
nice lunch here whenever I visit the island. It is so lovely and the food
is always good. I don’t think I have ever missed a visit to this charming


Eating on the outside terrace.


Ok now I confess, this is the real reason I Love Mackinaw Island. I look
forward to this every time I come. It’s the Best Grasshopper Drink I
have ever had. I have tried ordering this occasionally elsewhere but
never can they come close to this. Total perfection.

I know Mackinaw Island is one of Michigan’s top attractions, I know it’s
mine. From the charms of the island, the activities, the restaurants,
the retail shops, the harbor, and the hotels, it holds a special place in
my heart that I never tire of, BUT it’s those Grasshoppers I really love.
Don’t judge!
