madhu asked:Answer this1 AnswerMomOfFour answered: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!
