Who says summer is the best season for traveling throughout our beautiful state? Michigan is home to a plethora of lovely little towns just waiting to be explored, and autumn is the perfect time to venture out with your loved ones. So put on your favorite sweater, hop in the car, and head to the town of Marshall for a one-of-a-kind Michigan day trip this fall.

After breakfast, it’s time to indulge your inner history buff! Start your tour at the National House Inn on South Parkview Street and take a stroll through the town's historic streets.

Outdoor-lovers, there's something for you too: reconnect with nature during a walk through Ketchum Park, one of Marshall’s most scenic areas.
Looking for a way to unwind after all that walking? Stop in at Marshall’s American Museum Of Magic to reconnect with your inner child.
By this point, you’re almost certainly ready for a bite to eat. Check out the Dark Horse Brewing Company for hearty lunch paired with a refreshing pint of beer.
After lunch, take a stroll through downtown Marshall’s shopping district to check out everything from antiques to clothing boutiques.
Of course, no autumn day trip is complete without a trip to the local pumpkin patch, and Marshall’s got a lovely one nearby: make a stop at Bosserd Family Farm for some wholesome fall fun.
As evening rolls in, take a gander at the beautiful Brooks Memorial Fountain in the heart of Marshall. You’ll be charmed by its unique architectural design.
