There really is something about live music that improves my mood. Mackinaw city was crowded the afternoon the afternoon I went into its shopping district. However, there was a respite. At a public theater space, inside an outdoor mall, a local band was playing. The weather was nice, with a cool breeze going through the area, as I sat and enjoyed the musicians playing some covers of well known songs. There was a varied audience, with seniors taking a rest and little kids dancing to the music. I didn't travel to the area for the music, but perhaps that is what make travel so much fun; the pleasantly unexpected.

There is a great deal more vineyards in the area than I thought. You can taste some of them here.
