I shot this video as horses arrived on the island on June 1, 2010. It's a sight that is occurring regularly right now and will continue through early June.
Nearly all the hotels, B&B's, restaurants and shops are now open with the remaining businesses opening in the next week.
Happy 2013 and welcome to the new season of the Mackinac Island Blog. Hopefully you've stayed up-to-date over the winter with our Twitter feed (http://www.twitter.com/mackinac) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/mackinacislandblog). If you haven't visited them, please follow or like them as they have more frequent updates both in season and in the off-season.
While the photo above was taken in early June, 2010, it's a sight that is starting to become common right now - horses returning from their winter break! With every passing week, the horse population increases until it reaches about 750, more than the number of year-round residents on the island (about 550)!
Have you made your plans for a visit this year?
I found one website that had 3 trails not to miss on the island. I can't seem to find it again. The trails is Across The Turtle Back. I have looked on the map of the island I have, and can't find it there either. Can anyone help? Thanks!
I am considering purchasing a family pass from the Mackinac Island State Park this summer when my niece and I visit. I am unclear what the advantage is to buying one. If any one has used one, please help me.Thanks!Continue
