Mackinac-Island , also called Mackinaw Island, is one of the most unique places in the whole country. Located on Lake Huron between Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsulas, Mackinac Island is a virtual Victorian era theme park. No cars are allowed on the island, transportation is limited to horse & buggy or bicycle. (The island is reached by ferry from nearby Mackinaw City or St. Ignace.) As soon as you step off the ferry, you have entered a village that looks much as it would have in the early 20th century. Main Street is lined with gift shops, art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. The Victorian architecture, carriages and blue water of Lake Huron creates an unbelievable picture - so don't forget your camera. Mackinac Island, in fact, was the setting for the romantic movie, "Somewhere in Time," starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. The island is eighty- percent State Park and walking and carriage tours are available, with hiking, biking and horseback riding being some of the other activities favored by visitors. Shopping and dining are part of the overall experience of Mackinac Island, where everything from local pubs and taverns to world-class restaurants featuring an array of European dishes are available. The island is also home to three National Historic Sites and an outdoor family waterpark. In 1999, Conde Nast Traveler placed Mackinac Island in the "World's Twenty Most Beautiful Islands," for scenery and environment.
