The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island
It's elusive, mysterious, and has quite a reputation: the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. The front porch--over 600 feet long-- is the longest in the world. Open only in the summertime, it has been the lure of tourists from around the world since 1887. Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour immortalized it in the movie Somewhere in Time filmed 30 years ago. What a treat to sit in one of the rocking chairs on the veranda and gaze out across the Great Lakes.
