Hi everyone. Well it's summertime again and also vacation time. Last year I posted here and asked for some suggestions on where to go for a short trip and received a ton of help and feedback. I am posting here again this year for hopefully the same help with different parameters.
We are looking for a location up north obviously, that has a beach and preferably lodging on the beach, but at the same time has a vibrant enough downtown area to keep us busy if the weather isn't so hot. I know some small towns have brewery's, restaurants,etc. Traverse City is one option obviously but it seems REALLY expensive to stay there and I am trying to keep cost somewhat down. Cottages, hotels, whatever are cool.
Also, if you know of any hotels that are beachfront that offer a fire pit on the beach that would be awesome too. My gf has never done that and I am hoping to help her out.
I appreciate everyone's help, this forum is really a great resource and really very helpful.
