This Sunday isn’t just Father's Day -- it's also National Fudge Day. By most accounts, the first batch of fudge was concocted in Baltimore in the 1880's. By the turn of the 20th century, fudge making arrived on Mackinac Island in northern Michigan.
The Michigan Public Radio Network’sRick Pluta tours the modern day "fudge capital."
Memorial Day signals the start of the summer tourist season in Michigan, and the Straits of Mackinac is a traditional favorite for thousands of people. One of the area’s top attractions is Fort Michilimackinac, built by French fur traders in the early 1700's, and later turned into a British military outpost.
