They say getting there is half the fun, but they're usually wrong.

One exception to this rule is a trip to Mackinac Island. The ferry ride to or from Mackinac Island is always a scenic one. It is especially memorable when timed with a perfect sunset behind the Mackinac Bridge.

See for yourself.

Our week-long series on Mackinac Island and northern Michigan would not be complete without a look at the Mackinac Bridge.

We can't think of a better or more memorable way than with a ferry ride from Mackinac Island to Mackinaw City at sunset.

This ride was was taken on Shepler's Ferry on June 16, 2016.
