The unofficial statistic that I have read so far is that 50,000 people walked the Mackinac Bridge and that (unofficially) it was the best turn out in 12 years!!!
Guests that arrived yesterday who were coming up from lower Michigan said that it took them over an hour to get from Mackinaw City across to St. Ignace (a 5 mile stretch of bridge)and traffic was backed up for a LONG ways on the St. Ignace side (waiting to head southward).
I also had guests arrive yesterday from various points in Wisconsin, Minnesota and lower Michigan that said they couldn't believe how dead the campgrounds were on their trip to get here. Of course, they were NOT referring to any campgrounds around Mackinaw or St. Ignace! SO I guess we should't feel so badly that we were a bit less than 50% occupied this weekend.
Hope everyone had a safe holiday!!
