Ranker's slam on Mackinac Island includes a Facebook user by the name of Ivan who had a bad experience with his rental unit, hated the mosquitoes, and lamented how far you had to go to get to anything if you didn't have a bicycle or horse taxi. (Cars, of course, are prohibited on Mackinac Island.)

An anonymous poster to the dcurbanmom blog had this to say:

Mackinac Island is fun for kids (taking the ferry over, biking around), but it's definitely a tourist trap. ... The path that follows the perimeter of the island is usually very crowded with bikers, horses, etc., and if your kids are new-ish riders it's not as fun.

But not everyone's a naysayer.

Plenty of People Absolutely Love Mackinac Island

The couple who runs the YouTube channel Wanderlocal Travel Family explored Mackinac Island themselves just to see whether it was worth a visit or, in fact, just another tourist trap. They rented a horse and buggy, got lost while tandem biking, and even had high tea at the island's storied Grand Hotel. They did all the things. Spoiler alert: they didn't think it was a "tourist trap" at all - so take that, Ranker!
