Experience Fall in Michigan

Meanwhile in Michigan, nature is at its peak.

It only happens once a year—and it only lasts a few months. But when the vibrant colors usher in the magic of the season, it’s spectacular to witness. Welcome to fall in Pure Michigan.

With cool, refreshing air and longer nights full of stars, Michigan’s 19 million acres of forests crescendo into colorful canopies of crimsons, oranges and golds. Each leaf invites you to slow down for a dazzling fall color tour along our scenic routes, highways and coastlines.
Immerse yourself in the colors of the season by hiking Michigan's trails that lead you to spectacular views, wildlife, waterfalls and more—or take a ride along more than 1,300 miles of biking trails over diverse terrain throughout the state. 
Stop at one of the many apple orchards and cider mills situated throughout the state. Celebrate fall’s harvest by picking your own apples, enjoying fresh cider and doughnuts or exploring a corn maze before hopping on a hayride. If you prefer the spirit of the season in a glass, Michigan is home to over 140 wineries and 150 tasting rooms. The state also has 330 breweries on tap ready to pour hearty, fall-inspired craft beers and crisp hard ciders. 
Fall won’t last long, so find your perfect getaway soon. Because right now, we could all use a little Pure Michigan.
