Since no cars are allowed on Mackinac Island, one of the most scenic ways to take in the natural beauty is by bicycle. You’re always welcome to take your own bikes to Mackinac Island on the ferry. But there also are several places to rent bikes – from single-speed cruisers to tandem bikes to tag-along trailers for little kids. One of the iconic Mackinac Island experiences is to pedal all the way around the outer rim of the Island with the lake breeze in your face. It’s a leisurely 8.2-mile ride that takes 60 to 90 minutes.

This beautiful island in Northern Michigan is rich with historic landmarks, nature trails and a cycling route along its entire deep blue and turquoise coast! Would ya’ll love to cycle around and breathe in the fresh air too? Let us know in the comments!!

The Great Lakes have over 35,000 islands. Of these, 30,000 are in Lake Huron. Here are two of them. Round Island & Bois Blanc Island


I think this might be the ideal spot for a cold water dip. Where’s your favorite place to dip into the Great Lakes?

Did you know Mackinac Island State Park makes up 80% of the island? It used to be Mackinac Island National Park, making it the second U.S. National Park at the time. Many people just think of the Main Street area and the Grand Hotel when it comes to Mackinac. But with over 70 miles of roads and trails in the state park, there’s a ton of natural beauty to be explored on the island! Whether you grab your hiking shoes, rent a bike or get on a carriage ride, there’s plenty to see in Michigan’s first state park. 

Can’t believe our trip here was already 3 years ago.  Be sure to check out the link in our bio for more ideas on how to spend a great day on Mackinac Island!

There is a path that goes around the whole island and if you keep riding your bikes, you’ll reach at a point called “Sunset Rock”. This is the place where you’ll be able to see a great sunset but unfortunately the day we were there, it started drizzling a little bit so we couldn’t get the most beautiful sunset but I did manage to get Jarvis up in the air right before the drizzling started.

Checkout this coastline and the amazing blue water! This island is a paradise in summer time.
