Fall in Northern Michigan
Fall in Northern Michigan is spectacular for a fall color tour--our foliage highlights the autumn season at its best. The colors of fall Up North are what you think of when you picture fall: a combination of blue skies and crisp air with the brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows of the countryside.
You always hear about the autumns in New England, but they've got nothing on us here in Northern Michigan! An October afternoon drive along our country roads bring you face-to-face with nature's magnificence. The tastes of the season are abundant at local Oktoberfest celebrations, harvest festivals, and old-fashioned barn dances. Warm cider, sweet doughnuts, and fresh, crunchy apples fill your senses with fall's goodness. Now is the time to take a hayride, hike in a Northern Michigan park, or visit a local pumpkin patch. The crisp air up north is a refreshing change after summer's heat, and many of us start gathering wood to keep us warm during the upcoming winter months. Autumn in Northern Michigan-this is where you want to be!
Visit the many farmer's markets or Charlevoix's Apple Fest, stock up on fresh apples and cider, get the bike out for a long ride in the colorful woods, and perhaps enjoy a quiet beach day when Indian Summer strikes. Fall is not to be missed in Northern Michigan.
