Tips from the community

Beginning in mid-September, the sugar maple, birch, and oak trees in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula turn red, orange, and gold. The spectacle is best viewed via a drive along the 9.5-mile Brockway Mountain Drive. Before setting out, consult Pure Michigan’s Fall Color Map.

We equate summer with exploration, and easily one of the most exciting destinations to explore is the breathtaking Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Countless freshwater swimming opportunities, with Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, and Lake Huron all within reach, preserved historic destinations, biking opportunities, and more, make this an idyllic spot for a family getaway.

That is way way north, but wow is it beautiful! You'll find striking views of the lake and mountains and it's no wonder it's a favorite spot for weddings. But even in June it can have a chill, so make sure to bring a sweater!
