A Bike Ride Around Mackinac Island A Ferry Boat Ride From Mackinac Island Ryan drilling to video in Fort Mackinac Whitefish Point Lighthouse on Lake Superior

Richard and Kim on the Beach with Mackinac Island in the distance before the crossing to the Island. Mackinac Island  is located in Lake Huron near the Mackinac Bridge to the upper pennisula of Michigan. The Grand Hotel was the scene of at least two movies, the best known being "Somewhere in Time" which featured Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. Automobiles are not allowed on the Island, and transportation is by Horse and bicycle. It is a very Victorian Island, with a tourist flavor but also with exceptional natural beauty..
