Michigan's Mackinac Island has once again been named the best place to travel this summer.

USA Today once again named the quaint island the Best Summer Destination.

The car-less island between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas features ample opportunities for summer fun.

Get outside on Mackinac Island by visiting a beach or the state park. For getting around, you can hop in a horse-drawn carriage, walk, or bike. Speaking of biking, be sure to take a ride around the island, a beautiful ride that is a little over 8 miles. That ride includes numerous spots to take in the view, such as Arch Rock.
