The streets are car-free, which is one of the reasons why this place is so laid back. The island is relatively small and you can explore it on bike, horse-drawn carriage, and even on foot. You can also take a scenic boat tour.

For adventure seekers, there is Mackinac Island State Park, where you can bike, kayak, observe local nature and wildlife, or savor mesmerizing views from Arch Rock.
