Mackinac Island can be a real tourist trap – which can totally be fun. But if you are able to get off of the main drag, you will find some amazing trails with spectacular views. Most people do a carriage ride, or rent bicycles, but we chose to take the island by foot with the dogs. This left the more rugged trails to ourselves. Hardly encountering anyone, we felt we were alone on this beautiful island.
But don’t worry, we weren’t totally anti-tourist on the island. We bought Murdick’s fudge!
