Last Weekend in Michigan

I could not have asked for a better weekend in Michigan! Being my last weekend, I was so happy to spend it at the greatest place in the state Mackinaw Island. 

For those of you who have never heard of this hidden gem, Mackinaw Island is a historic treasure in Michigan. This island has been around since the 1600's and is about 8 miles around. The whole island never operated any vehicles so to get around you have to have horse and buggy. 

The island is home to the Grand Hotel which was built in 90 days! There, we ate a 5 course meal celebrating my grandparents 50 years of marriage!! I can't even imagine being married for that long, so cool I am able to celebrate such a wonderful marriage. 

I felt fancy eating at such a nice establishment :) In order to get in women have to wear a skirt or dress and men a tie and jacket...Ohhh we fancy huh!? 

Not only was this a fun weekend but it was so fun to spend with family. All my cousins were able to make it and we had fun doing as many things the island has to offer as well as taking family photos for my grandparents. 

Hope you all had a great weekend! The countdown is on to 5 days till the big move! Stay tuned for some good packing advice I learned first hand :)

  5. Mackinac Island has been on my must-go-to list forever! My sister lives in Michigan and we talked about visiting, but she always has too much going on because she's a student. At least I did get to try Mackinac Island Fudge ice cream in MI, though! It looked like you had so much fun and I really enjoyed reading your little recap!
