This is one of the must-sees when you visit Michigan. At 5 miles long, it is one of the world's longest suspension bridges and certainly one of the most beautiful. Phenomenal scenery from it.

We have visited this area many many times and keep coming back it is so beautiful in winter and summer. Especially beautiful in the fall! Love the outdoors and there’s plenty to take in here.

Just go the speed limit and enjoy the straits! Don't worry about going over the Bridge. It provides an extraordinary view of Lakes Huron, Michigan, and the Straits of Mackinaw

The rain was almost torrential at times during our drive. Visibility was very limited for the most part. Would love to go back and visit Macinac Island someday. No motor vehicles being allowed on the island is an intriguing adventure. Hope to get there someday...More

This drive is a must do when you are in the area. In the winter the ice below is very beautiful and changes all the time.

This is such a beautiful bridge. Makes you wonder how hard it was for residents to travel before the bridge was built.

It would be impossible to predict. Likely get best current info from MDOT website. I know one thing, . . unless you like tractors, 1500 of them will cross 9/7/2018 for annual event.
