Michigan has some glorious beaches in the summer and fantastic winter sports ranging from snowmobiling trails to skiing. However, fall color tours are just as terrfic. The bold reds and array of yellows and oranges peep through the forest lines as fall travellers drive through coastal regions and the woodlands of Michigan. Here are a list of fantastic fall drives:
Leelanau County: This spectacular home is quite well known for the cool weather that makes Riesling and high quality reds taste so good. Wineries have been popping up everywhere along the coast but that is not just what this county is perfect for. Breweries, wineries, art galleries and more, the fall color tour outshines them all in Late September. Drive the 116 miles down M-22 through Manistee, Benzie, and the Leelanau County. Be sure to enjoy the Sleeping Bear Dunes and Lake Michigan Shoreline. Lake Leenanau Vacation Rentals
Porcupine Mountains: Nicknamed the Porkies, these mountains are in the Upper Peninsula. This state park is the largest in Michigan and covers over 35,000 acres of land. Enjoy the bountiful colors in what some say are the best the Northwoods can offer by Summit Observatory Deck, Lake of the Clouds Observatory or the South Boundary Road.
Oscoda/Tawas Bay: While this area boasts some of the most fantastic sunsets and sunrises along Lake Huron but fall really puts on a show of gleaming reds and yellows. Along this stretch of coast, experience 190 miles of diverse landscape such as the Tuttle Marsh Wildlife Area, lighthouse tours, Tawas State Park (The Cape Cod of the Midwest), River Road National Scenic Byway, Largo Springs, and the Rife River Recreation area.
