Need help planning Michigan travel

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have decided to go to MI for our anniversary, I've always wanted to go, but we've always opted for the closer north shore in MN, not this year. Were driving from MN, now I want to go to Michigan mainly for the beautiful beaches that look like the ocean(since we don't want to go the airfare route) I also think the drive at least will be beautiful. So I've been looking at traverse city, staying at the Country Inn and suites, driving up on Wednesday August 27th, leaving Sunday, so 4 nights. Then my husband brought up picture rocks, and thinks maybe breaking up the drive and staying the first night in Mounsing(?) then driving to Traverse staying 2 nights, and then going back to picture rocks and staying one more night, then heading home.

Now I'm looking to explore, and see beautiful sights, but also wanting to relax, I don't want to go go go every hour, I want to spend some nice time reading a book on the beach, away from the kids, and I do in home childcare with 12 kids this summer everyday. So looking for help planning an itinerary sort of.

I also read South Haven was beautiful, Its a shorter drive by a couple hours getting there, but would go no where near picture rock.

Please help me, I need to get this figured out as its over labor day, and hotels are filling.

Thank you soooo much!!!!
