"We had a great excursion with Mackinac Revealed, hearing about island living, the horses, and carriages. My wife and I enjoy natural areas and geo-caching, so we went to some out-of-the-way spots and learned about the Great Lakes, Mackinac's history, and the local environment. We went in a little cave, walked some caves, and gained a new appreciation of Mackinac Island."
