Fall: Take the Scenic Route

Fall signals its arrival with the slow turning of leaves. Michigan’s 19 million acres of woods crescendo into vibrant crimsons, oranges and golds, finally exploding in their annual blaze of color.

And as nature heralds the season’s arrival, it’s an opportunity to live the words of Pulitzer Prize winning, one-time Michigan resident poet Robert Frost: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”

Welcome to fall in Pure Michigan.

The new season offers new experiences ― hiking or biking through brilliant tree tunnels, strolling still warm beaches, crunching into that perfect orchard apple, quenching your thirst with an autumn microbrew beer, watching a quintessential Indian summer sunset. Come celebrate the harvest while reflecting on nature’s bounty and beauty. Be part of the magical transformations of both season and spirit.

Open Road

The open road. It takes on many forms, from the scenic highways to the rugged trails. From the sand covered, to the well-traveled. They lead us to the beauty of nature and the beauty of simple pleasures. The open road is alive and well, and waiting to take us to Pure Michigan. Your trip begins at michigan.org.
