Travel + Leisure dubs Mackinac Island best island in continental US

MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (WLUC) – Travel + Leisure Magazine outlined northern Michigan’s Mackinac Island as the No. 1 Best Island in the Continental U.S. on Tuesday.

Mackinac Island took the cake in this year’s checklist, called a Midwestern Haven by the magazine. Every single 12 months for the “World’s Best” awards, the magazine’s readers can weigh in to charge journey locations. In 2021, Hilton Head in South Carolina topped the list.

Travel + Leisure reports 80% of the approximately four-square-mile island on Lake Huron is shielded as a condition park. Readers can check out the island by foot, bike or horse-drawn carriage, but no autos are allowed.
