Straits State Park is located on the upper peninsula of Michigan and is minutes from the Mackinac Bridge. Named after the straits that pass through the two peninsulas, this state park offers gorgeous views of the bridge at night.

From the campground, head just a few feet towards the beach on the shores of the straits and you will see the Mackinac Bridge in the distance. Grab your tripod and get situated for some beautiful long exposure shots of the bridge at night.
