What is the best time to see fall colors in Michigan?

Do you have a date range of when we should see fall colors in Michigan? We hope to visit Ludington around Oct 1 and wondered if the colors would be good then. THANKS!


Hi Tim!

Fall colors generally start mid to late September in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and then shortly thereafter in the lower peninsula. Ludington usually has fall colors peaking around October 3-17 time frame so you should be there at a perfect time!
