      We are headed to Michigan from Maryland. We have never been there before and there are so many things to do. Does it make sense to go North and see Mackinac Island and then head down to Traverse City? We do have 2 campgrounds that we have booked. Is is worth seeing this Island vs going to the other beaches?

      We want to hit the pubs and dance and play a few Bachlorette games.
      We are all 24 years old, except my bridesmaid cousin who is 18.
      Can she get in the pubs and dance (not drink) or will they make her leave?
      Are the Pubs fun?
      I am also considering Midland Street in Bay City
      But I am not sure the bars there will let an 18 year old in
