Below the bridge on the mackinaw city side is a visitor center and Fort, you can also stop off here and snap pics. When I went the bridge was partial under construction. Some fog and hard to see at points but stunning views

Just beautiful and scary when traveling over. Nice park on both sides of the bridge. Would like to walk it sometime.

crossed the bridge from mackinaw city to the Upper Peninsular as part of road trip to north of MIchigan with family living over in the USA. the views were spectacular going over the bridge - pity we were visiting pre-seaason & most places in St. Ignace were closed. Must go back one summer to take ferry from there to Mackinaw... More

This was our 2nd trip to the bridge. The first time we chickened out. I say just do it. It is awesome. If your scared get behind a semi. They have to go 20 MPH so you can go at your own pace. Definitely will do it again.

A favorite destination. Great to see especially at night, and the history of the bridge is pretty fascinating, as well. Take the ferry ride under the bridge for an even better experience.

Don't miss the chance to drive across this magnificent bridge and visit the Upper Penninsula. Plan ahead and walk across for the annual labor day event on September 4th of 2017.

I've been the bridge too many times to count, and have never been disappointed. DO NOT DRIVE OVER THE BRIDGE IF IT IS WINDY... If you don't want to change your shorts. It is a suspension bridge, and it moves !!!

Beautiful bridge connecting Michigan. It's a little scary because you KNOW the water is cold, but not many cars have gone over the side. Speed limit is slow so it really seems safe when crossing.

I cross this bridge several times a year. Typically I am towing a trailer. The bridge is 5 miles long and something like 150 ft above the water at its peak. The bridge is painted a light blue to make it blend into the background. The northern Michigan scenery is beautiful. The bridge is periodically closed due to high winds... More
