While on the island we ventured to the top of the island to Fort Mackinac. This place was originally a British Fort, then taken by the Americans, then back by the British in 1812, then given back to the United States after the war. So the History in this place runs deep and It was so cool to explore the fort with its original structures and see the reenactment of soldiers firing off rifles. This was one of the coolest things on the island with incredible views.
Okay man. I may have found one of my favorite places. Mackinac Island is hands down one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. There was never a dull moment. and the views were never not beautiful. We took a full day to head over to the island and it was such a unique experience. the horses and bikes everywhere, the old homes, and the opportunity to just go put your feet in the water whenever you want.
We got so sun burned, our feet hurt so bad, and we took every opportunity to go sit by the water that we could and as Im writing this I just want nothing more than to go back to the incredibly clear water and pretty rocks off the shore.
Girls Trip screams trouble. Unless you go with two coworkers and just use all the phrases your kids at work do the whole trip and the only problems you get into were eating Mac and cheese really late in the hotel lobby.
The girls and I drove up to Mackinaw City for the weekend, got a dingy hotel on the water with beautiful views and explored the city and even found our way up to the U.P. and explored the most amazing parts of Northern Michigan.
