Walk The Mackinac Bridge This Labor Day
Here's something you can cross off your "Pure Michigan" Bucket List... The 59th Annual Mackinac Bridge Walk.
If you've ever wanted to cross the Mackinac Bridge on foot, this is your yearly opportunity to do so. I've not had the chance to walk the bridge myself, but I can tell you that even driving over the Mackinac Bridge is a majestic site, so I can only image the splendor you get to witness on the walk.
The walk is coming up this Labor Day, so if you think this is the year you'd like to tackle this Michigan tradition, here's what you need to know:
The walk is free and starts at 7 a.m. on Monday, September 5th with the Governor's party kicking off the tradition. Walkers can depart from St. Ignace (where the walk begins) any time between 7 and 11 a.m., no walkers will be allowed after 11 a.m. Keep in mind that the bridge is about 5 miles long, so you'll want to wear comfy shoes, AND there are no restrooms on the bridge, so you may want to make a quick pit stop to the bathroom before departing on the walk (which takes approx. 2 hours to complete). Once you make it over the bridge, you can take a bus ride back to St. Ignace for $5. Get more info on this event (including what is and isn't allowed on the bridge) by clicking HERE.
