At first glance, Michigan might not seem like a must-visit fall destination, but it has some secrets that might surprise you. Like many states, it bursts into color in the fall, making all of its attractions brighter.
From the breathtaking waterfalls in Tahquamenon Falls State Park to the excitement of football Saturdays in Ann Arbor, these Mitten State destinations are worthy of a road trip.
So far into Northern Michigan that it might be easier to drive there from Wisconsin, Marquette (175 miles from Green Bay) offers plenty of places to see the changing leaves. The Harlow Lake Recreational Area has 19 miles of hiking trails and several biking trails to ensure a picture-perfect lake view.
Those less interested in hiking can see the view from the County Road 510 Bridge, just west of Marquette. The city is also home to the U.P. Fall Beer Festival in early September, where beer lovers enjoy their pick of hundreds of local beers.
