Mackinac Island is wonderful for families.  Even if you've also experienced in the beauties of a full-tour of the Upper Peninsula, children will say that Mackinac Island is the absolute favorite part of the entire trip.  Children and parents alike love the bikes (kids can walk all over and be safe), the fudge (yummy!), lots of shopping (little stuff children can purchse with their pocket money), the water, and being outdoors as a family.

It's easily possible to spend an entire day and not leave the main street!  There's so much to see.  Plus, once Main Street has been completed, there's an entire gorgeous island to ride around and discover together.
