What an awe inspiring sight when approaching this suspension bridge! The bridge is 5 miles long and was the longest in the world for a very long time. It is an engineering marvel built around 1957. You can view where the two lakes meet: Lake Michigan on one side and Lake Huron on the other.

I was a little freaked out about driving over this bridge, but really it's not that bad. Gorgeous views.

Whilst visiting Mackinaw City we wanted to see the sunset near the Mackinac Bridge. We arrived Later and the day and missed the museum and Ft. Michilimackinac but we were not disappointed!

The views are spectacular on a clear day. The night drives are equally beautiful. The bridge is well maintained and is a great ride.

Celebrating 60 years, the Mighty Mac still looks as awe- inspiring as it did on its opening day in 1957. It is beautiful as it sweeps across the straits, connecting southern Michigan to the U.P. We've crossed it dozens of times in the last decade and it continues to thrill.

Who doesnt want to see this magnificent bridge. Most beautiful during a sunset, get spectacular photos at that time.

The one thing every visitor to MI must try, just to say you have done it. Recommend going on a nice day - wind and rain make it a less that desirable experience

Beautiful and elegant. There is an interesting sovereign shop under the head of the bridge with helpful, friendly staff. Next door are parks and landmarks that are nice to see. Great for families with young kids on a nice day
