Let's Visit Mackinaw City, MI
Mackinaw City, MI is my first stop in my 3 day, 2 night road trip to the Upper Peninsula. Mackinaw City is at the northernmost tip of Michigan's Lower Peninsula. The two peninsulas are connected by the 5 mile long Mackinac Bridge which can be seen in the end of the video. I show the downtown shopping area of Mackinaw City, the Mackinaw City Crossings, and the bridge itself with views of Mackinac Island and Lake Huron (the Straits of Mackinac to be specific).
