Wanderlust Wednesday - Mackinac Island

Okay, so it's a little late, but I'm not about to flake again this week! As promised, I'm actually posting about another beautiful place. I had no idea where I was going to write about up till about an hour ago. It may seem lazy, but I've been thinking about how I could use a vacation and this is one of my favorite places. I figure, since I've never been it counts!

Mackinac Island, Michigan

Mackinac Island is a small island in Lake Huron, located between Michigan's Lower and Upper Peninsulas. The entire island is a National Historic Landmark and almost all motor vehicles are prohibited. The main modes of transportation are bicycles and horse-drawn carriages.

The restoration of historical elements gives the place a feeling of nostalgia, taking you back in time.

The water is so blue here it gives Santorini a run for its money.

Not to mention, it's home to some of the coolest rock formations.

Arch Rock:

The Devil's Kitchen:

Skull Cave:

And Sugar Loaf:

All in all, Mackinac Island is just the place to go if you're in the mood to travel back in time. It's an idyllic escape right here in the US. It's a place soaked in history, from Native American legends to wars between countries. Mackinac played a role in American history, even if it wasn't a major one.

I can't wait till I can take a vacation and witness all this history myself.
