A lot of things make Mackinaw beautiful, primarily the landscape. It is on the northern tip of Michigan’s lower peninsula. I can attest to the fact that northern Michigan is one of the most exotic places, blessed with an abundance of special spots and scenic vistas. Too few know about this, apart from the locals. So, I am here with this blog to tell you why you should come visit. You will love it!

People also make a place appealing and Mackinaw City is full of friendly folks. Just hop on the trolley and take a gander at the picturesque nature of the town. It will take you on an adventure where you will explore many discoveries. I will review them here and there in this blog. I can get quite vocal about my region, even if it is in writing.

The populace wants to preserve the natural area and will use any means to ensure it stays pristine. This includes modern forms of technology. Water conservation and efficiencies are top of mind today. In spite of its proximity to the lake and small population, water usage is always important. Everyone wants to conserve energy these days and save on utility costs, even if it means replacing toilets with low-flushing models.

I recently attended a conservation conference, and water was one of the topics of discussion. The lectures had a wider import, but those of us who live in Michigan are not immune to world concerns about potable water and potential shortages. Pollution rears its ugly head when you live near a body of water as I do. It is certainly worthy of mention in a blog of any type.

No one has forgotten what happened in Parchment when Michigan declared a state of emergency in a community of over three thousand residents. The drinking water was found to be tainted with high levels of fluorinated chemicals. The shock of this happening in the US resonated around the world.

When you live in paradise, you want to keep it protected from the ravages of modern live with all the waste that it entails. There is an incredible bridge to take you to the upper peninsula, an area equally appealing. Everywhere are great shops, boating to Mackinac Island, and a waterpark. Attractions like the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse and the local Colonial fort abound along with a lively nightlife. No wonder we have over 50 hotels and resorts in Mackinaw. There is no end to what you can do and see here, so start planning your trip now!
