 The best vantage point the next time you're there: The neighborhood at the top of the hill at the entrance to the winter sports park.  You can almost see the entire bay!

I am completely biased having grown up in Petoskey.  But my favorite place to visit time and time again is Mackinaw Island.  My parents honeymooned there.  The first significant trip I took anywhere was the ferry trip from Mackinaw City when I was seven.  Everytime I go it's all new to me again.  The smell and beauty of the Straights of Mackinaw envelop my being and I experience true inner peace.  The love I feel for my home state and her people is clearly evident any summer day spent on Mackinaw Island.  From the front lawn of the Governor's Mansion, to the walkway up to the Fort and the many meadows and parks Michigan's past is available to all of us in it's present.  Also, our natural Gibraltar is the open gateway that intersects our two beautiful peninsulas and unites all of us.  If you've never gone there, you really owe it to yourself to ride a bicycle or take a carriage ride on beautiful Mackinaw.  I guarantee, even if you visit only once in your life, you'll be able to close your eyes like I do and re-experience the glory that is the most beautiful place on Earth.
