Among the many unique things about Mackinac Island is that it is home to the oldest grocery store in America. Doud’s Market dates to 1884 when it was founded by brothers James and Patrick Doud, whose father fled the Irish Potato Famine and came to Mackinac Island. The store is still in the family more than 135 years later, providing anything you forgot to pack and everything you didn’t even know you needed.

Doud’s Market

America's oldest grocery store serving the locals, residents, and visitors of Mackinac Island since 1884. Full service deli, bakery, groceries, beer, wine, liquor, fresh meat and pizza.

Island Hardware

Mackinac Island's only hardware store. Located on the coal dock behind Mackinac Island Taxi. The store has a large variety.

“When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what's happening. That's where the power is. You don't have the power to control everyone and everything” 💭

Reflecting on how I completely let an internet stranger upset me this week 😩 simply saying Mackinac Island is “boring to anyone under 60” ..now, I am generally not the type of person that comments on the news channels or get involved in public confrontations (this scenario reminded me of why) I just felt so immediately riled up & sad that there are people out there that don’t appreciate the natural beauty of Mackinac & think it’s just this big tourist trap ?! 💔 I very much got emotionally involved, ranting a million things there are to do, defending the island. I was completely distracted by it and annoyed with myself for being that bothered 😅 So that’s where I should have taken a moment to accept that not everyone is going to be as passionate about every destination in Michigan as I am. And that’s okay. I’d rather fewer people be there anyway 😂This is just one of hundreds of places Michigan has to offer, it’s hard not to defend it ❤️ Laughing at myself after the fact of course, but c’mon! 🐴 Now it’s off my chest and I won’t be bickering with internet strangers anytime soon 🤐✋🏻

I saw this driftwood and thought it would make a good foreground piece for the Mackinac Bridge
