Happy Birthday Mighty Mac!

Fifty years ago, on November 1, 1957 the Mackinac Bridge opened for business. Connecting our peninsulas, the Mighty Mac is five miles long, with a suspension bridge spanning 8,614 feet. The Mighty Mac is the third longest suspension bridge in the world.

If you can't get there to celebrate, check out these websites for a vicarious thrill.
