Mackinac is a vista for romance, and it's not hard to see why. This is a landscape characterized by high limestone bluffs (Mackinac Island), beautiful bodies of sparking water, vibrant forests, and mystical geological formations. Elegant hotels, fine restaurants, and even horse and buggy transportation (Mackinac Island) further enhance this romantic atmosphere. It's not surprising that the classic romance Somewhere in Time was filmed in this region.
