Camping Trip | Day 6

On the final day of our camping trip we woke up early to clean up the campsite and pack up the cars before saying adios to the Upper Peninsula! We decided to break up our drive home by stopping in Mackinaw City and then venturing over to the Island.

When we got to Mackinaw we were starving so we had lunch before hopping on the ferry. Our plan for the day was to ride bikes around the island (7 miles total) and check out the Arch Rock. The weather was noticeably muggier and hotter (it had just rained too), but we made the best of it! After riding around we stopped at one of the bars that was having a Short's Tap Takeover and cooled off. From there we headed back towards mainland and our ferry went under the Mackinac Bridge! I've never done that before, so that was cool. We stopped at the Mackinac TapHouse before hitting the road for home. 

And just like that our camping trip was over! It was a great trip and everyone had a great time. We're already talking about making it a yearly thing, but next time we'll probably stay in the Lower Peninsula. I'd like to spend more time on Mackinaw Island, and even stay at the famous Grand Hotel, one day too.

These are the see-through grates I was talking about... ah!
