You can get some great pictures of the Mac at this park. It's a bit of a history lesson on the inside! Loved it!!

While it was nice to see the full length of this remarkable bridge, if you aren't near here don't have remorse, it is not that great. [Easy enough because of ample free parking.] However, if you are a photo buff, it is a must! There...More

Lovely little park to stop at for a photo of the Mackinac Bridge. When we where there in October the winds were ferocious, so not hospitable for lingering longer.

We actually went three times, first time we walked around and took pictures, there is a nice building with a lot of information on the bridge, we left and brought dinner back to eat in the car, and then went back to view the bridge...More

We stopped for a great photo op of the bridge. There wasn’t much else to do at the park and the winds were impressive but we got a great photo.

This is a nice place to go at night to take pictures or just sit and look at the bridge all lite up at night or even during the day.

Plenty of parking to get views of the mackinaw bridge. Easy to find off of the main drag in St. Ignace.

Also an informational component with a cool statue of a bridge builder. Fantastic spot to sit back and enjoy a picnic or take-out meal while marveling at Mighty Mac and the beautiful straits.

This is a wonderful park, offering great views of the Mackinac Bridge at any time of day. Great sunrise location. Flowers in the park attract tons of Monarch butterflies in the fall.

The little visitor center offers a great view of the Straits Bridge. But more interesting is the history of the ways people used to get across the straits before the 1950's. Good views, nice gardens, clean. Plenty of parking.

The sand dunes on Lake Michigan is about 18 minutes west on US 2. Great place to swim.

There are no grills in Bridge View Park however there is a roadside park a couple of miles to the west which has grills and picnic tables and also overlooks Lake Michigan and the bridge.
