So, on the way to Sleeping Bear Dunes we entered Charlevoix and were impressed with how nice the town looked and decided to stop and see if there was a public beach. We found a little area with a lighthouse. The day was super gray and gloomy but the photos still came out alright.
The neighborhood was wealthy and some areas had gated entrances. I would love to visit Petoskey again because of how picturesque it is.
