Fodor's Review

Originally used to transport horses across the Kalamazoo River, this fringy little ferry is now a top tourist attraction. Built in 1857, it's the only hand-cranked chain ferry left in the country. It takes about 200 cranks and about five minutes for the U.S. Coast Guard-inspected vessel to float the 100 yards across the river.
