If you ask me, no visit to Mackinac Island is complete without visiting Lakeside Salon & Spa. The largest salon and spa on the island and in the area, this is one of the most iconic and popular destinations on Mackinac Island. I simply cannot say enough good things about the spa itself, the staff, the tranquil atmosphere of the spa, and the quality of the services they offer. If you’re looking for a way to treat yourself on the island, make your stay extra special, relax and unwind, celebrate a special occasion, or if you’re looking for a gift for a loved one, I absolutely recommend a spa day at Lakeside Salon & Spa.

I’ve written dozens of travel guides, and along with those have come requests for more detailed itineraries to help make planning travel adventures, especially when headed somewhere new for the first time, even easier. I wanted to start this itinerary series by sharing how we spent a long weekend at Mission Point resort on Mackinac Island. Mission Point is a very family-oriented and dog friendly hotel, so even though we travel as a couple, this itinerary can be adjusted to include the whole family – four legged family members included!
When on Mackinac Island recently, we enjoyed the most gorgeous sunset sail around the Straits of Mackinac, and saw incredibly vibrant colors like oranges, yellows, pinks, and briefly purples. It had been raining almost all day, so we were a bit worried that the sunset wouldn’t be very visible, but our good luck held out and we were shown the most magnificent sunset I’ve seen all year, which allowed me to take some of my favorite sunset photographs to date! I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them and getting splashed by the choppy waves!

Once again, Duffield Lane delivers a gorgeous, inspiringly comfortable and refreshing garment that I will be able to wear year after year.

It’s the easiest way to look chic and feminine without having to give it much thought, and it’s the perfect look if you’re running short on time when getting ready.
LoveShackFancy is one of my go-to brands for fun, feminine, and airy dresses. I have been a longtime fan of the brand’s heavy use of eyelet, botanical motifs, scallops, ruffles, lace, and an easy to mix and match color palette.

This is my favorite carry-on luggage, not only because it’s so beautiful, but because it’s the perfect size to hold everything I need without any wasted space, which means I can pack light for a quick trip, or pack the essentials during a long-haul flight.
