Michigan: Between St. Ignace and Mackinac Island in Lake Huron
Taking the “classic ferry”—designed to remind passengers of steamers that crossed the Great Lakes’ waters in the past—sets the mood for visiting the island that wants to stay old-fashioned with its Victorian homes and horse-drawn carriages—and no automobiles. During the half-hour voyage travelers enjoy views of the modern four-mile-long Mackinac Bridge, the only physical link between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas.
