The Mackinac Bridge (/ˈmækɨnɔː/ MAK-in-aw) is a suspension bridge spanning the Straits of Mackinac to connect the Upper and Lower peninsulas of the U.S. state of Michigan. Opened in 1957, the 8,614-foot (2,626 m) bridge (familiarly known as "Big Mac" and "Mighty Mac") is the world's third-longest in total suspension and the longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the Western hemisphere. The Mackinac Bridge carries Interstate 75 and the Lakes Michigan and Huron components of the Great Lakes Circle Tours across the straits and connects the city of St. Ignace on the north end with the village of Mackinaw City on the south.

Envisioned since the 1880s, the bridge was designed by the engineer David B. Steinman and completed in 1957 only after many decades of struggles to begin construction.

Mackinaw is a village in Tazewell County, Illinois, United States, best known for its Mack-Ca-Fest Farm Days Festival. Mack-Ca-Fest takes place annually during the end of every June. Festival events include: the Little Miss Mack-Ca-Fest Pageant, a tractor pull , and cornhole tournament.

Mackinaw's population was 1,950 at the 2010 census and is part of the Peoria, Illinois Metropolitan Statistical Area. Despite its small size, Mackinaw is home to a range of unique local businesses such as Area 52 Paintball, Mackinaw Valley Vineyard, and its first ever bar—Haynes on Main. Since 1933 Mackinaw has been an alcohol free town, but that changed in 2013 when residents voted to allow the sale of alcohol.

Mackinaw City /ˈmækɨnɔː ˈsɪti/ is a village in Emmet and Cheboygan counties in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 806 at the 2010 census; the population surges during the summer tourist season with the influx of seasonal workers who labor in the shops, hotels and other recreational facilities there and in the surrounding region. Mackinaw City is at the northern tip (headland)of the Michigan's Lower Peninsula along the southern shore of the Straits of Mackinac. Across the straits lies the state's Upper Peninsula. These two land masses are physically connected by the 8,614-foot (2,626 m) Mackinac Bridge, which runs from Mackinac City north to St. Ignace. Mackinac City is also the primary base for Ferry service to Mackinac Island, located to the northeast in the straits.

According to AAA's 2009 TripTik requests, Mackinaw City is the most popular tourist city in the state of Michigan. Local attractions include Fort Michilimackinac, the Mackinac Bridge, the Mackinaw Crossings shopping mall, Mill Creek, the Old Mackinac Point Light, the Historic Village, the McGulpin Point Light, and the retired US Coast Guard Icebreaker Mackinaw.

Michigan consists of two peninsulas that lie between 82°30' to about 90°30' west longitude, and are separated by the Straits of Mackinac, and some nearby islands. With the exception of two small areas that are drained by the Mississippi River by way of the Wisconsin River in the Upper Peninsula and by way of the Kankakee-Illinois River in the Lower Peninsula, Michigan is drained by the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence watershed and is the only state with the majority of its land thus drained.

The Great Lakes that border Michigan from east to west are Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and Lake Superior. Because of the lakes, Michigan has more lighthouses than any other state.]citation needed[ The state is bounded on the south by the states of Ohio and Indiana, sharing land and water boundaries with both.
