The U.S. City Where Motorized Vehicles Are Banned

Hey did you know there's a U.S. city where cars are not allowed? I didn't. It's in Michigan and it's an island; Mackinac Island, located just offshore in Lake Huron.

Downtoearthnw.com tells us why motorized vehicles have been banned there pretty much since they were invented.

I remember taking the tour on one of the horse drawn buses like your picture. The 1812 forts on the island are very interesting, and great fudge also. :)
