Autumn in Charlevoix is stunning, charming, relaxing, and all yours.
Who’s excited for fall color tours, pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, and caramel apples? If you can’t tell, fall is one of our favorite seasons. And there is no better place to be during the season than Charlevoix, in fact, Expedia recently named Charlevoix as the best place to travel in October. The fall colors are ablaze, the night sky is brilliant, and Northern Michigan is full of delights. We’re taking a moment to share some of our favorite places to go and things to do during the fall season.
Wait, what?! September?
Let’s talk about September for a moment. We believe it is one of the most underrated months to visit Charlevoix. We love September because the average daily temperature is 71 degrees and the water is still warm (you can even still go out on a boat ride)! Added bonus: the fall colors are just starting to appear. You can also enjoy minimal wait times at attractions and restaurants.
Fab Farm Life
Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of life, we forget the simple simplicity of farm life. The fall is a time to get out and explore the beauty of farm life. Whether you find your way through a corn maze, try an apple cider, pick apples, hunt for the perfect pumpkin to carve this Halloween, barnyard petting zoos, or take a wagon ride through the orchards, getting back to the basics of why we all love fall is a must.
There is something majestic about the nighttime skyscapes. The cool evening temps bring out the best of the cosmos and there is minimal light pollution making it one more great reason to stargaze in Charlevoix. Not only is the Milky Way on full display, you may even catch a shooting star or two. If you are very lucky, you may even catch the Aurora Borealis dancing across the nighttime sky.
