I've never been to Mackinac, but it sounds sweet. No insects? Sounds like our experience with Pittsburgh, coming from Minneapolis (Land of 10,000 Lakes and 1 billion+ mosquitoes).

Pain is weakness leaving the body.

How do you eat an elephant?

I will not fail.

I was in the same boat. I was born and raised in Michigan but never been to Mackinac Island. A few years ago I decided I needed to experience it and my parents and in-laws also came with us. That year we stayed several days at the Main Street Inn. Staying on island is very expensive. I've been back a few times but those times I stayed in Mackinaw City or St. Ignace and took the ferry there and back every day. In addition to no cars there are also no insects on the island. Considering mosquitos are almost the state bird of Michigan that is a nice break. There are no large animals either. Well, sometimes a deer will decide to swim the 8 miles from the mainland but since there isn't enough vegetation to support them they are caught and returned so they won't starve. You can rent a horse and carriage or a cruiser bike. It's a pretty cool vacation.

Very cool to check out Bicycle Times!

Would LOVE to get to Mackinac island one of these days. KICKING myself for having been a Michigan resident through my college years and never having gotten up to Mackinac!
