Fall Color Tour

Look no further than Charlevoix to experience Northern Michigan’s fall colors. During the month of October, fall colors are at their peak. Stop at any of the area apple orchards to enjoy numerous tasty treats like a slice of apple pie, you-pick apples, and apple cider. If you’re out for a drive on Charlevoix’s scenic country roads, be sure to stop by Rex Beach in Norwood for amazing lake views. The drive around Lake Charlevoix is a great color route; this journey will take you thru both East Jordan and Boyne City. Also be sure to drive up to the Tunnel of Trees to see the windy roads surrounded by a tunnel of fall foliage. The surrounding country side is full of gently rolling hills and abundant foliage that is sure to satisfy that fall color trip you’ve been waiting for. After a day of exploring Northern Michigan, stop downtown Charlevoix for dinner, a craft beer, or a tasty treat. Explore downtown boutiques for amazing fall discounts and one of a kind merchandise. Just before the sun sets, stroll along the pier toward the lighthouse and enjoy the sunset on Lake Michigan. Celebrate nature’s harvest at the annual Apple Festival. Enjoy an art and craft show, a variety of food vendors and family friendly events.
