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.

We got to spend so much quality time in Michigan this summer. It was great to not only spend time catching up with family but to spend time catching up with our home state.⁠
