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”.

What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
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.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.
