The first week of August we will be traveling with our 15 and 13 year old children and will be spending a couple days in Traverse City on our way up to Mackinac Island. I am wondering on our way back where a good beach town would be to stay and explore for a day or so. We've been to St Joseph and South Haven so we're looking for a place north of there. Any suggestions?
BTW, I saw something about "coast guard week." What is that?
