That city is a dinky little island in Lake Huron that you can only get to by boat, or snowmobile if the lake is frozen. It makes sense for them to not allow cars... except ambulances.

That said, I've been there a couple of times and biking around Mackinac Island on only MI state highway with no cars is pretty fun. And the fudge is good too.

Ok subby, are you on the chamber of commerce or what?

Same deal on Fire Island.

The biking is very nice, and there are some pretty buildings. However, the whole town (not as bad away from town) smells like horse shiat. I suppose they're quieter than all the diesel mobiles we let into our lives, but the whole time I felt surrounded by horse poo. I guess that's quaint?

Apparently US cities by the late 1800's were practically swimming in the stuff. In light of that, long live the automobile.

Well, duh.  It isn't exactly a large place.  It's not like you can drive there anyway.
