Manistee County Coastal Fall Color Tour

Manistee County is home to diverse fall color. With the seasonal temperatures, Lake Michigan and inland terrain variations, we have “two” fall color seasons that are usually about a week or so apart with the inland terrain peaking prior to the coastline peaking.  This is great for tourists and locals alike, as they get a little more enjoyment of our regions spectacular fall foliage.

Color is really hitting peak. We should be experiencing peak all week in various spots along the coast.  The drive along M22 is spectacular, and the stops along the way make it the perfect weekend trip to Manistee County.  Be sure to hit downtown Manistee and all of the great shopping & dining spots along the river, and make your way out to Douglas Valley winery, where they are enjoying their Harvest Days festivities on the weekends. We hope to see you soon along the coast in Manistee County!
