Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.

Have you been to Mackinac Island? Located off of Mackinaw City, Michigan, Mackinac Island is a beautifully landscaped wonderland full of fudge and relaxing times. Cars are banned on the island, and you can get around by bike or carriage. 

Though it is spelled Mackinac, it is pronounced Mack-In-Aw. The difference in spellings between the city and island are a result of the British renaming Mackinac to Mackinaw so that it more clearly matched how the word was pronounced, though the island maintained its French spelling.

Both words originate from the Ojibwa word Michinnimakinong which in English means “great connecting sound fault land or place”.

We're so thrilled to feel the invigorating sunshine and the warmer air of spring in Petoskey. It's the season of rebirth, growth, and movement. Bikes have always represented such freedom and joy to us, and working on Mackinac Island inspired us to make them a big part of our daily lives. Enjoy these warmer days, air up those tires, and get out for a ride.⁠ To see the original painting, stop by latitude45 in Petoskey!
