MINIs on the Mackinaw Bridge. A great idea in our minds – pairing a car we all love with the largest suspension bridge in the country and one of the most beautiful spots as well. MINI owners from all across the country are being invited to help make history on Saturday August 3, by taking part in the world’s largest-ever parade of MINIs and establish a new Guinness World Record.
As big fans of this part of the country (look for an article about this area tomorrow on MF) we’d highly recommend this as a great weekend getaway. There are thousands of B&Bs and Cottage rentals all along western and north Michigan that would be perfect for accommodations and plenty of things in the area to make it a perfect long weekend. In short if you’re looking for something to do the weekend of August 3rd you just found it.
