Day #1 DinnerWe dined in style at Nonna Lisa's, a lovely Italian Restaurant in Mackinaw. We pretty much had the place to ourselves, which was fine with us. We shared a delicious wood-fired pizza and awesome breadsticks. There was plenty to take back for the next day's lunch. We felt like such grown-ups dining together like that.
Pro's & Con's of Vacationing in Mackinaw in May
Con: Neither Miniature Golf establishment received the memo that we were going to be there and therefore were not open for the season
Pro: Kids aren't out of school yet, so there aren't tons of kids running around
Con: Apparently every school in Michigan plans an End-Of-The-Year field trip to Mackinaw during May so there were tons of unexpected children and teens running around everywhere!
Pro: It isn't very busy at all, so you don't have to deal with crowds and the employees are bored and usually appreciate chatting.
Con: The season is just beginning so many of the employees are new to their jobs and the area and are a little clueless to what they are doing.
Pro: Note above con and think of all the fun pranks we could pull
Con: Most shops close in the early evening, thwarting are need to continually shop.
Day #1 ConclusionWe were able to do a little bit of shopping at some of the brave stores that stayed open later and we each indulged in a Root Beer Slushie at Devon's Delight (and made a new friend in the process). In a silly little aside, we both would tend to ponder and ponder whenever we ordered at a restaurant or got a snack and 9 times out of 10, we would just get the exact same thing. We are such dorks! We then called it a night as all of the excitement had given us both a headache and we needed to rest up for the coming excitement.
