A narrated, horse-drawn carriage tour is the iconic Mackinac Island activity. Yet, it’s just one of many equine activities to enjoy in a land that has been car-free forever. You can go horseback riding on a guided or unguided tour, rent a private carriage for an intimate ride, even drive your own horse and buggy! Or you can visit with the horses in the barn and find a new friend. Plus, Mackinac Island is home to two museums showcasing antique carriages.

The pinkponymi. One thing I love about this place is all the various options to dine for 1 restaurant. This is inside (obviously) but holds the infamous tiny stage behind the bar where you get to see some great acoustic performances all season. Be sure to go to their page for postings on the website of the entertainment lineup. ...
