Mackinac Island is a small island in Lake Huron. Being filled with stunning architecture and for having a really colorful past, the whole site is declared as a National Historic Landmark.

Also functioning as a resort, the Mackinac Island was once a Native American settlement, with traces of their inhabitation in the island dating back to at least the 10th century. In the 17th century, the Europeans occupied the area. Then, in the 19th century, it was developed as a resort and summer tourist destination. It is also known for its local fudge, being its most popular specialty.

Motor vehicles are banned on the island since 1898. This is why visitors should be prepared to walk, bike, or skate around the island. Folks can also rent carriages and saddle horses to get around, though.
