Michigan’s autumn is about to fall

The predictions are in: fall colors are ahead of schedule and will move through Michigan by mid-October. The window is short and calendars are busy, so plan your road trip now and get ready for Michigan’s dazzling displays of red, gold and green.

From visiting historic state parks and museums, to sandhill crane and elk viewing, to watching huge freighters move down the St. Clair River, there’s something for everyone to enjoy this season.
