As fall creeps in with its cooler nights and colorful vistas, it’s time to start thinking about food, the kind that sticks to your ribs and makes the house smell wonderful. If your group loves food, Fall Flavor Weekends at Greenfield Village are second to none. For one weekend in September and one in October, Greenfield Village features food from days gone by, including where it came from, how it was prepared and of course, how it tasted. It’s a foodie heaven your group will not want to miss. Plan now and book a bus for the weekend of Sep 29-30 or Oct 6-7 and enjoy days full of food and fun from morning until evening.
Even though autumn means the end of consistent sun and warmth in Michigan, at least we have the changing leaves and their breathtaking vistas of color to enjoy as we say so long to summer. In fact, Michigan is routinely one of the most-ranked states for “best-of” color tours by such sources as Fodor’s Travel, USA Today, and others. To help you choose the perfect path for your fall color tour charter, here are three exceptional areas in the state for fall color and more.
Lake Michigan has long drawn millions of visitors every year to its gorgeous sandy beaches, towering sand dunes, wonderful towns and villages, and of course the lake the Ojibwa Indian’s called “mishigami.”

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is a true treasure, with so many places to go, events to attend and entertainment options to enjoy, it’s almost impossible to give it all the accolades deserved.

Lake Superior, as its name states, is in a class by itself in the Americas. With a surface area of 31,700 square miles and a volume of three quadrillion gallons (that’s 3,000,000,000,000,000) or 10 percent of the world’s fresh surface water, it’s topped only by Lake Baikal in Siberia, which holds 20 percent of the world’s freshwater.
Michigan is pretty much synonymous with water, freshwater that is, and it’s no wonder. The mitten state has 11,000 inland lakes and borders four of the five Great Lakes with more than 3,100 miles of freshwater shoreline — more than any other state (and second only to Alaska for total shoreline). That said, it stands to reason that Michigan also has a ton of great beaches and most Michiganders have their sworn favorites. But here’s a challenge for your next group trip — try a new beach nowhere near your favorite and get to know what other areas have to offer. You might be happily surprised to find you have two favorites!
