We are literally going where the wind takes us and on Day 34 (after leaving our home base in Florida) it happened to bring us to Mackinac Island (the land with no cars!!!) where we had the honor of exploring not only the island but also Fort Mackinac thanks to Dominick who made our visit to the Fort possible.
To say we all had a GREAT time is an understatement! We literally had the chance to experience history come back to life! We were 150 feet above the straits of Mackinac reliving the eighteenth and nineteenth century through original buildings and tons of interactive exhibits! We also had the chance to witness a cannon shooting demo which was super cool because they were dressed up as soldiers as they explained and did the demo and it was very interactive! Julez thought it was a bit loud but he loved it!
I am not sure if the kids or Luis and I had more fun in the kids interact building LOL it was just a blast! The kids got to dress up (our 2 year old was crying when it was time to take her outfit off and she cried all the way to the next exhibit!). There was so much to do in there it was definitely a GREAT way to teach them with them enjoying it.
They have their own cafe if you want to eat with a GREAT view you must check it out! Also the VIEWS are insanely beautiful! We walked the entire island and honestly the Fort is the best spot to get views of the island! The pictures and videos we took just don’t do it justice YOU HAVE TO GO to witness it with your own eyes!
We HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend checking out Fort Mackinac ! Here you can check out their hours I promise you wont regret your visit! http://www.mackinacparks.com/parks-and-attractions/fort-mackinac/
