What are some of the best scenic drives in Michigan?
Sometimes there’s nothing better than hopping into the car, turning the ignition on, and going for a drive. But not just any drive…a scenic drive! The Great Lakes State has a lot of scenery to explore and plenty of backroads to do just that. You may want to take the M-199, or the Tunnel of Trees scenic drive, where you will drive through some incredible foliage. This drive is perhaps best for the fall in order to see all the seasonal colors. Within the Hiawatha National Forest in the Upper Peninsula, take the Whitefish Bay National Forest Scenic Byway and drive alongside the breathtaking Whitefish Bay.
