The Mackinac Bridge, connecting Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with the Mitten, is the third-longest suspension bridge in the world.

A view of a large suspension bridge, from almost underneath.

Another view of the same large suspension bridge, from the side. We see the approach at the end of the bridge.

Bikes parked on Mackinac Island, where cars are banned:

A large collection of bikes, probably hundreds, parked in front of a square one-story building with a triangle-peaked roof. In the background are some tallish trees.

The International Bridge, connecting Michigan and Ontario (from the Ontario side):

A view of a large body of water from its shore. We see a small amount of land in front of us, with a pile of rocks. In the distance is a long bridge, with a truss portion on both ends.

In Sault Ste. Marie, you can see two sets of fireworks in early July, for Canada Day and Independence Day:

A oval sign that says "Docks Riverfront Grill". Below is a letter board reading "Join us for fireworks July 1 & 4. Best view in the Soo."

The Soo Locks (allowing ship traffic between Lake Superior and Lake Huron):

A parallel group of locks, seen from the side. In the background is a long bridge.

I got this awesome souvenir from Michigan:

An oven mitt with a map of the "mitten" part of Michigan, showing the location of a few dozen Michigan locales.
