Breathtaking vistas, country roads and walks on the lakeshore are some of the many ways you can enjoy the colors in the Western Upper Peninsula. Kermit Holt of the Chicago Tribune wrote of the fall colors: "Nowhere in North America, not even New England are the colors of autumn more vivid and memorable than in Michigan's Western Upper Peninsula."

Experience a fall vacation of reds, oranges, golds, and greens that tint the maple forests in the Western Upper Peninsula from mid-September to early October. Ninety percent of the area is forest covered, so your eyes will have plenty to take in.

The colors outlined by the mountains, bluffs, and lakes form postcards around every corner. There is nothing that can match one of our lakes or waterfalls wrapped in the brilliant colors of Autumn. Come see the burst of color for yourself or take a friend along for the company.
