    Ah, Mighty Mac. Always a pleasure to view and cross. Read up on the construction from 1954-1957. Quite an impressive story! My parents lived in St. Ignace from 1954-1964, and watched Mighty Mac go up. I stayed recently in the Super 8 with a bridge view, and crossed it when going home. If you go south over the bridge, be sure to pull into the park for a "troll's view" of its underside.

    Staff was very friendly! While I didn't make the trek up the 180+ stairs and stoppedat the half way landing, my family did and said it was worth it!

    Nice little clean park to view the lakes and the bridge! Was right down the road from our hotel, so it was super easy to get to.

    It was very interesting place. We could learn a lot about Indian's Tribe named Ojibwa.
    Their culture, history and connection with the nature are shown there in form of good displays. There is many examples of Indian's hand made items, tools, clothes and weapons. The museum occupies the former church's building. It's located close to the Lake Huron shore.

    I just went here for some good pics of the Mighty Mac with the woods in the foreground. I wish I would have known about the spot that is lined up head on with the bridge.

    They have a lower and upper campground. Driving through the sites seemed sort of close. Pretty busy when I was there the second Sunday in June.

    The penned-in deer are up close and you can feed several. We got to see one give birth right in front of us!

    The views were outstanding! The staff was fantastic. Very well organized ferry system. Easy to get tickets. My teens loved the top deck.

    We had to find out what the “Mystery Spot” was all about. Wanted to find out the mystery behind it. I don’t want to give out the secret but if you have an extra hr or so and you’re looking for something to do rain or shine it is a pretty fun thing to check out.

    We parked at a nearby park and walked to the boardwalk and out to the lighthouse. Boardwalk is well maintained. There’s a small splash pad for kids there. Pet friendly. Nice relaxing walk after dinner.

    We accessed the lighthouse through the Huron Boardwalk right next to the Wawatam Park. The park has beautiful flowers, benches, sundial and a bell to ring. The lighthouse is very photogenic and does not take a bad picture. It is still a working lighthouse.

    Large parking lots near and less than 3/10 mile walk to the lighthouse. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area.

    Fun for a short period and a couple drinks! The slots were not kind to us but, we heard that they aren’t to many people lately. The bar server was friendly and great to share stories with.

    Good selection of U.P./Mackinac Island/St. Ignace t-shirts, Minnetonkas. Good prices, too, in late August on the slippers. Worth the stop if you are interested in these kinds of items.

    First went to Bridge View Park for a guaranteed view of the Mackinac Bridge then went to the Marquette Memorial since it was in the direction to get back to the freeway to cross the bridge. Lots of parking. The bathroom there was very nice. Took the paved path to the overlook which had a decent view of the bridge. Lots of shade so I went on a hiking trail back to the parking lot.

    Beautiful pottery shop near the public boat launch in St. Ignace. Pottery is Japanese- and wildlife-inspired. Love the slip-trailing technique and dragonfly theme. John’s art is perfect for display and functional enough for usage during special dinners.
