🇺🇸 - Michigan, USA -

北美五大湖(Great Lakes):休倫湖(Lake Huron) | 麥基諾島(Mackinac Island)

[第一酷]歷史底蘊深厚是王道

Mackinac Island 是一個充滿歷史味道的小島,因為整座島保留了18、19世紀的建築、生活風格,還有交通運輸方式。真的是所有房子都是維多利亞風格;酒吧裡面播放的音樂也可以一秒把你拽回過去。我甚至能保證,連空氣都聞得到濃厚的歷史氛圍,讓人十分興奮!

在過去,小島曾是美國獨立戰爭時英國的前哨基地、毛皮貿易中心;獨立戰爭後,美國正式拿回小島,小島變成為了美國繼黃石國家公園後,第二座國家公園(現在是州立公園的樣子)。後來更有電影- 似曾相識(Somewhere in Time)在小島取景拍攝。

圖為 在麥基諾堡壘(Fort Mackinac)上拍攝的。望出去那一望無際的湖水就是休倫湖(Lake Huron)。我一直覺得根本是海啊⋯⋯哪裡像是湖了?

Mackinac Island at night - the center portion of Main Street (downtown area) holds 3 major hotels almost in a row. Bicycle Street Inn (left), Main Street Inn (center with lilac colored lighting), and the Lilac Tree in the distance (the pioneer of Lilac colored lighting). Of course the many shops and business at street level are along here too..
