apostle islands

Can anyone tell me how is apostle islands? Are there any activities.

Going to apostle islands is better or going to Mackinac Island is better?

Apostle Islands is a wonderful area. A very small downtown area with a few shops. Activities in the area are apple or blueberry picking in season, golfing. Sea kayak tours, hiking on the mainland or on the islands. Boat cruise tours usually half day long, some stop to visit the Raspberry Island lighthouse others just cruise past the islands and their lighthouses.

Compared to Mackinac it is less crowded, less shops and amenities, but offers multiple smaller islands to visit , less developped. Both are great places

Both are fun but in different ways. Mac is one island with many people, shops, and tourist attractions. Apostle Islands are more remote and accessible only by boat.

If you would like solitude while camping in a beautiful area go for the Apostle Islands. If you want to be near people in a quaint setting go for Mac.

If you go to Mac take a detour through Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. If you go to Apostle Islands make sure you stop some places in the north woods of Wisconsin or swing by the Porcupine Mountains in the UP of Michigan.

Both are Mac and the Islands are fun but in different ways.

second #2 post. if you want a more wilderness experience, and you'd like to go sea kayaking, apostles all the way... if you're more into the tourist thing, but still would like to visit a beautiful island, go to mackinaw....
