  • Colorful fall foliage in Michigan.

Traverse City, Michigan – It’s beginning! Tree by tree and leaf by leaf, the annual display of autumn color is making its way across northern Michigan.

On the hillsides overlooking Grand Traverse Bay, you’ll see a sudden burst of orange or scarlet among the green stands of oak, maple and pine. Here and there, the mounds of sumac are touched with deep smoldering crimson, while the orchards and vineyards of the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas are filled with brightly colored apples and thick clusters of dark purple grapes. In a matter of weeks, the entire region will be aflame with sheets of red, orange and gold.

Since fall colors can “peak” fairly quickly, the Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau is providing visitors with up-to-date information about autumn colors through its Fall Foliage Hotline. By dialing 800-727-5482, visitors can receive updated reports on the progress of the annual fall color display, including areas where the best colors can be found.

For a list of color tour driving routes and information about Traverse City’s super-affordable Fab Fall Getaway Packages, check the bureau’s website.
