One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited would be Mackinac Island. While visiting the island for the first time in the summer of 2011, I was taken back by how amazing everything was. In my mind, I had expected an island entirely tailored towards tourists. That couldn’t have been further from the truth though. Sure there are a few hotels on the island and a couple souvenir shops, but this is a completely functional island with roughly 500 residents that stay on the island year-round. That’s not to mention the countless other people who have vacation homes on the island as well. I had overheard a couple gentlemen talking about a few homes they had noticed were available for purchase and several more that were available for rent they were considering-purchasing.
For me, even renting a home on the island for the summer would be beyond a dream. See I’m one of those people that would love to have a beachfront property on Silver Lake or even a spot right on the Great Lakes themselves, but on an island? That’s another story. People always say if they won the lottery they would purchase an island when in reality, they don’t have to!
Why spend millions when you can have a cool little get away on Mackinac. Not to mention the bragging rights you could hold over your friends. You’re not limited to Mackinac Island itself though. The surrounding area is home to several islands with smaller communities that don’t bring in upwards of 15,000 tourists on a given day.
As a resident of the island, if you ever wanted to leave for the “main land,” then your entitled to free fairy rides to ensure you can get around and you’re not just stranded to an island like Tom Hanks in “Cast Away.”
