Goes Together Like a Horse and Carriage
As you may or may not know, Mackinac Island has a ban on almost all kinds of motor vehicles, so walking around town almost feels like walking back in time, and with Jack’s Livery Stable, you can make the journey feel even more authentic with an old-fashioned horse and carriage ride. Located just a quick walk from our Mackinac Island hotel, Jack’s offers visitors the option of a romantic private carriage ride through the island, or you can take the reins of a horse and carriage on your own. Horseback riding is available as well. If you choose to drive or ride alone, Jack’s patient and accommodating staff will make sure you’re comfortable with the horses before sending you on your way. So while you might not own a time machine, taking a horse-drawn carriage down Market Street is a pretty close second.
