Mackinaw / Mackinac City/Island for the Weekend!

Which is it??? Is the city Mackinaw or Mackinac?? Who cares? It's fun!

Either way, last weekend, we decided, pretty much on the spur of the moment to take a short break up north. So, fast booking of a hotel commenced (using a pretty darn good (at least IMO) website), and mid-afternoon Friday, we hit the road. All was good til we hit the Zilawakee Bridge, which was closed, so that added a bunch of minutes onto our trip, but hey, no big deal.

We hit Mackinaw City about 6:30, checked into the Ramada, and paid an extra $10 per night for a lake front room. And relaxed. For 10 minutes until we needed to head out and eat. Which meant to the kids, head out and run on the beach. Which was one of the reasons we went there....

There were notices to not feed the gulls. I guess it's because they get a bit aggressive.

Anyway, Mackinaw City for us was a place to stay, shop, eat and be based as it was too expensive to stay on the Island. More posts will follow..
