School is winding down, the temperatures are rising, and that means it’s time to start planning those summer vacations. At the top of the list for a lot of people is Mackinac Island. The 3.8 square mile island in between the two peninsulas has been a beloved vacation spot for generations of Michiganders. This summer, history buffs will have a special treat on the island as the Mackinac Island Historic Parks rebuilds the historic Fort Holmes.
Current State learns more about the project and other sights around the island from Phil Porter, director of the Mackinac Island Historic Parks.
