Vacation in Michigan or surrounding state with toddlers

We are looking for somewhere to vacation in august with our 2 year old and one year old. We live in michigan and have been most places here. Looking for suggestions for a vacation spot either in Michigan or a nearby state. We would like to be outside of a city, on a beach, and somewhere we can stay in a nice rental home or nice resort. We would love to have a city/town nearby with restaurants, parks, etc. We are open to all suggestions. Thanks for the help!

If you're looking for someplace new in Michigan, maybe it would help to tell us where you're from, and where you've already been, so we don't duplicate those locations.

From Canadian Lakes. We have been to Pentwater, Ludington, Frankfort, Muskegon, Spring Lake, Charlevoix, Traverse City, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Upper Penninsula, Mackinac City/Island, Cheboygan, Tawas, all major cities (ie: GR, Lansing, Detroit, etc), and many others. As I said, We are just trying to get ideas for somewhere we may have overlooked. All suggestions would be welcome.

Sounds like the lower southeast corner of the state might be what you are looking for-South Haven, St Joseph. Saugatuck, Holland and Grand Haven are nearby, too. Lots of restaurants, parks, beaches. I'd search the cities themselves and then come back with more specific questions. Otherwise, sounds like you have covered MI quite well-lol.

There are some little towns in the Thumb, and nice beaches. But I don't think that is what you are looking for....
