The Mackinac Bridge

The Mackinac Bridge connects Michigan's Lower Peninsula with Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

You may have drove across this magnificent structure, but have you ever traveled under the bridge on the water? The views from the bridge while crossing are truly wonderful, but the view from below is where one realizes the magnificent size and height of the structure and its unique architectural design.
