25 Coolest Midwest Lake Vacation Spots
More cool island attitude: Mackinac Island, Michigan
Cars aren't allowed on this idyllic island located between Michigan's Upper and Lower peninsulas (120 miles northeast of Traverse City). Instead, horse-drawn carriages meet visitors at the ferry docks, and bike rentals are plentiful— perfect for burning off the island's famous fudge.
Many people stay in town, but they're missing out on one of the island's real treasures—peaceful lake-view hikes in gorgeous Mackinac Island State Park (pictured).
