Fall’s fiery hues transform the landscapes of Muskegon County, turning it into a canvas painted with the colors of nature. An event that perfectly captures this transition is the “Depot to Depot Fall Color Tour”, now in its 19th year. A Muskegon tradition, this event invites residents and visitors to explore the region’s breathtaking beauty during its most vibrant season.
Dive into a Journey of Colors
Presented by Visit Muskegon, this self-guided tour in October stretches from the Muskegon South Pierhead Light all the way to the White River Light Station here next to the Weathervane Inn. Travelers can wind along the magnificent Lake Michigan, traverse the historic West Michigan Pike Byway, and even soar above a canopy of fall colors on a thrilling dual zipline. It’s an opportunity to see Muskegon County’s scenic roads adorned in their autumn best.
As you journey through, don’t miss out on the exclusive offers from local shops, restaurants, and attractions. They’re celebrating the season with special deals throughout the month-long event. To explore these, check out the Depot to Depot Deals.
