FOR A RAINY DAY

Way back in the middle of the 1800s, famed writer William Cullen Bryant remarked about Mackinac Island’s “delightful” summer climate with “agreeably cool” nights and daytime heat tempered by the surrounding water. Still, as picture perfect as the Island’s weather is, sometimes it does rain. And when it does, there are unique ways to spend the day including magical butterfly conservatories, museums of art and culture, working blacksmith shops and a vibrant downtown with one of-a-kind stores and attractions.

For the love of lighthouses! There is a quaint restaurant right on the shore of Lake Huron, that serves a great Benedict, and this view with your coffee. I hope to enjoy it one day again…. Hopefully it would be on the second Saturday in July, so I can visit this beauty!
