The Island of Mackinac truly is an escape from traffic, car horns and the basic chaos of modernity. This peaceful interlude of the island is enhanced greatly by the Wings of Mackinac Tropical Butterfly Conservatory and botanical atrium. The emblazoned Monarch, Emerald Swallowtail, Blue Morpho, and Orange Barred Sulphur, move through the air in distinct flashes of vibrant color, disturbing the silence with only the slightest murmur of air beneath their gilded wings. You’ll feel the stress of life ease away amongst the tropical flora. It’s a truly unique experience offered on a truly unique island.
