See where the color is peaking this week while on your next extendd weekend getaway.

There’s nothing like Michigan in autumn — when nearly 10 million acres of public woods are ablaze with fiery reds, oranges and gold.  Each leaf invites you to slow down for a dazzling fall color tour along highways and coastlines.

We invite you to embrace the robust colors of the season as you sample fresh and locally-grown seasonal treats at apple orchards and cider mills throughout the state. Breathtaking colors make the perfect backdrop for fall horseback riding, fishing and golf.

In the coming week, you’ll find various expressions and displays of color at In the coming week, at ArtPrize 2022 in Grand Rapids, the North American International Auto Show In Detroit, the Hops and Lock Festival in Sault Sainte Marie and the Harbor Haus Oktoberfest in  Copper Harbor.
