A beautiful bridge any time of year. It was an engineering marvel when it was constructed and still quite a site summer, winter, day or night. Take little time while passing through to enjoy the bridge.

The Mackinac Bridge is incredible. The bridge itself, as well as the views across the straights, are something special to view and photograph. The 5 mile crossing goes far too quickly!

The bridge never disappoints with its size and beauty. It is a great engineering feat to see and drive, especially in the winter with ice below you.
