    Not too sure if any banks on the island would exchange Canadian dollars. Your best bet is to contact a hotel on the island and ask a staff member. He or she will most likely know the answer. But Don't forget there are probably ATMs that will accept your major credit card.

    It's about 360 miles from Fort Wayne to the Lower Peninsula, so probably about six hours in the car for you. You'll need to take one of the passenger ferries from either Mackinac City or St. Ignace across the Mackinac Bridge (toll required) to get to Mackinac Island. There are no cars allowed on Mackinac Island, so you will need to park your car at one of the ferry terminals.

    Hey there! Yes, Mackinac is a car-free island. Passenger ferries operate out of Mackinaw City and across the Mackinac Bridge from St. Ignace. Three ferry companies run services to the island: Shepler's (June thru October), Star Line (end of April thru October), and Arnold Line (end of March to January). Each offer on-site parking, either in fenced-in lots that you pay for or in free non-fenced areas. Check with each to see what works best. Enjoy the trip -- Mackinac's a fun place to visit!
