Mackinac Island

The Place to Be

The Fudge Shops!

In Mackinac, there are many fudge shops. Mackinac is known for their fudge. In the fudge shops, you can see the bakers making the fudge. They do layer over layer over layer of creamy fudge. They also have a plethora of flavors. My personal favorite was the cookie dough fudge I had in Mackinac.

Fort Michilimackinac

Fort Michilimackinac is an old military fort in Mackinac Island where part of the War of 1812 took place. It isn't in use any more. It is now used as a museum/memorial. It shows how people survived during the war and how they lived their lives. It also teaches visitors how the war played out and what happened during the war.
