Listen to our Destination Spotlight on Mackinac Island

Tim Hygh, CEO
Mackinac Island Tourism

When Robert & Mary created the “Destination Spotlight” segment back in 2017, the purpose of the segment was to showcase locations they’ve personally visited and share some insights into what makes each place worthy of your travel dollars.  If you’re planning a trip, New York, Orlando, Las Vegas, Washington, DC, Nashville, San Francisco, etc. are well known — but there are so many other places to consider!

The very first “Destination Spotlight” happened back on April 1st 2017 and featured Mackinac Island, Michigan.  Since then 125 other locations have been showcased, but for “DS #126” we decided it was time to check-in for an update since 7 years and nearly 4 months had passed.

Mackinac Island in the Upper Peninsula regional of Michigan a magical place unlike anywhere else you’ll find in America.  There are no cars on the island, you travel around by horse and carriage, by bike or on foot.  There are over 35 different places to stay, but The Grand Hotel is where Robert & Mary have stayed and this historic property is also unlike anyplace you’ll find elsewhere.  Historic Fort Mackinac was one of our nation’s 1st National Parks, it’s now a State Park and includes the oldest building in Michigan!  From the ample fudge shops, wide variety of restaurants and an opportunity to enjoy a cool place in the hot summer — you will step back in time during a visit to Mackinac Island and the change of pace will likely bring you back again and again…
