Mackinaw City

We said goodbye to Brett...(he flew home) and took off toward Ohio. Driving, driving, driving... we finally leave the U.P....and make a brief stop at Mackinaw City.

Sadly, we didn't have the time to ferry over to Mackinac Island this trip.




















There are many similarities of this area and our home in Seaview.


Mackinac Bridge - Astoria Megler Bridge
Colonial Fort Michilicmackinac - Fort Clatsop
(both with historic reenactors)
Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse - North Head Lighthouse & Cape Disappointment Lighthouse
Historic vacation summer homes.
Native American communities
Fur trading history
Military Installations to guard against attacks on the waterways
-both even have Musket firing demonstrations!
