I've been to the bridge numerous times, and it never fails to awe me. It's a beautiful sight, and is fun to drive across too.

It's the Mackinaw Bridge - an engineering marvel! I take every opportunity I can to travel across the Bridge, watch traffic cross the bridge, or just sit and stare at the bridge. Visit if you can, if you like science or engineering, you'll love it....More

It was our first time riding across the bridge on a motorcycle. We went across with several of the tractors that were heading to St. Ignace for the tractor show. It was a pretty cool experience.

Very impressive. The fee for a car is $4 each way but ok to pay that for the experience. Also saw it from below on Shepler ferry at no extra cost.
