Michigan Road Trip

Hi, We are doing a Michigan road trip at the end of August. Landing in Detroit, hitting Ann Arbor, Frankenmuth, and Mackinaw City. Trying to decide if we should spend a night in Traverse City and then head to Grand Haven or South Haven and fly out of Grand Rapids. Or spend two nights in Traverse City and fly out of TC.

I posted similar question on TC site. Thanks for any help in making our decision easier.

Any suggestions?

It depends on what you're looking for. The drive to GH is about 3 1/2 hours, and SH is another 45 minutes past that. GRR is closer to GH, the airport being about a 45 minute drive. Both towns have wonderful beaches and offer good restaurants and bars. GH is more vibrant, appealing to a younger, more active crowd, while SH tends to be a bit more sedate and family oriented.
