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 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.
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
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.
