I'm planning a three day trip to either Charlevoix or Traverse City in mid-August. Tentative dates to arrive on Wednesday, August 13 and depart on Saturday, August 16. I'm looking for suggestions on where to stay. Our budget (2 people) is for a mid-range hotel/motel/B&B -- $100-$150 per night. We likely would go to Sleeping Bear Dunes, but other than that, our schedule is open. We like to poke around unique shops, see beautiful scenery, and stop for a cocktail. I'm getting the impression that Charlevoix may be a bit pricey, so I'm looking for some suggestions on what city to go to or place to stay.
