Best things to do with kids in Harbor County

We're spending a week in Harbert in late August with a 5 & 6 year old. Any suggestions for the best things to do and best beaches to hit?

Warren Dunes State park is nearby and has a huge dune to climb and a great beach.

At about Exit 16 near Bridgman is a go cart/ mini golf place. Also in Bridgeman is Weko beach. That beach has some board walk/ steps on the dunes to climb. Also everynight at sunset Taps are played from the deck. Very cool to see/hear!

St Joseph is a few more miles north and has a new interactive fountain near the beach, new carousel, Curious Kids Museum, another great beach. Some of the nearby orchards have u-pick-em -- That time of year some peach varieties will be available for picking.

Michigan city, IN , New Buffalo, St Joseph and South Haven all have lighthouses. For sure you can walk out on the piers in St Joe and South Haven -- haven't done the other two so don't know exactly.

If you have your own bikes to bring then South Haven has a great bike trail If no bikes -- then you can rent bike very cheap in St Joe from the welcome center in downtown and meander around town -- or rent one of the cute surrey like bikes for 2 or 4 from another place.

Up in Saugatuk they have dune buggy rides that your family might enjoy too.
