Our 5 Year Anniversary Trip

We left this morning for our 5 Year Anniversary trip to Mackinac Island, MI!! We are driving the 11 1/2 hour drive into Mackinaw City, MI, where we are staying the night at the Fairview Beachfront Inn.

We plan to have dinner in Mackinaw City tonight and drive around the town some. In the morning we are going to the Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park, where we plan to spend the morning zip-lining and exploring the whole park. It looks like its going to be so much fun.

Once we're finished exploring the Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park, we will then take a ferry over to Mackinac Island. There are no vehicles of any kind (other than horse drawn carriages and bicycles) aloud on the island. So we will park our truck in a gated lot and take a ferry over to the island, where we will spend the remainder of the week!

We have lots of stuff planned, as well as a lot of relaxation time! We are staying in three different hotels to try and capture all the different areas of the island. We will be going on a carriage tour of the island, touring the fort, visiting a butterfly conservatory, playing golf at the Grand Hotel, going on a midnight ghost tour/hunt, dining at lots of different restaurants, bicycling around the island and doing some shopping on Main Street. I'm sure we will find other things to do once we get there, but I'm really looking forward to some relaxation time and uninterrupted sleep!

I will have a detailed post(s) of our trip when we return the following week. I can't wait to share our trip with you all.  I will probably post pictures here and there on Facebook and Instagram while we're gone, so if you'd like to follow us along on either of those sites, feel free. I have buttons on my sidebar! :-)
