Take This Gorgeous Fall Foliage Road Trip To See Michigan Like Never Before

Fall in Michigan brings the promise of so much more than just the changing colors of the trees. Autumn in Michigan means fall festivals and everything pumpkin spiced and colored. It’s a season that offers a unique set of sensory treats, from a color palette brimmed with scorching reds, golds and oranges to the olfactory delight of drying leaves. Autumn in Michigan is also the perfect time to take a road trip to experience these things firsthand.

Michigan is so big that, with the help of PureMichigan, we’ve put together three regional road trips where you can delight in the new fall colors, smell the leaves and experience some local flavors. Pick the road trip nearest you and enjoy!

ROAD TRIP #1: UPPER MICHIGAN

We call this the “Lighthouse and Parks Fall Foliage Excursion.” If you love Michigan lights (who doesn’t?) and have an affinity for the great outdoors, then you’ll love this fall foliage road trip in the UP. Here’s a link to the Google Map that you see below. Have fun!

The fall season in Michigan offers stunning vistas and amazing color transformations. Take any of these three amazing road trips to enjoy all that autumn in Michigan has to offer!
