“Michigan’s tourism industry is an essential part of our growing economy, supporting jobs and small businesses in every region of our beautiful state from the Western UP to Southeast Michigan and every great city, town and village in between,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “This year’s Fall and Winter Travel Guide is an excellent resource to learn more about Michigan, plan your next vacation, and stay caught up on events across the great state over the coming months.

This year’s Travel Guide is an excellent resource to Pursue Your Pure and learn more about Michigan. The Guide highlights stunning sights to see, exciting places to go and fun activities to experience for visitors and travelers alike. Michigan has a wealth of opportunities to enjoy throughout the fall season, whether it’s taking a fall color tour, visiting one of our dynamic urban city centers, or exploring any number of our trails across that state
“The fall and winter seasons offer exceptional opportunities for travelers to experience Michigan’s vibrant outdoors, quaint communities, dynamic urban centers, and spectacular hidden gems across Michigan,” said David Lorenz, Vice President of Travel Michigan, part of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. “The year’s Pure Michigan Fall and Winter Travel Guide will give you insights on vacation destination options and seasonal activities, as well as introduce you to some of the vitally important small businesses that dot our state.”
This year’s fall guide highlights the Kal-Haven Trail prominently on the cover. This 33-mile trail links the city of South Haven to the city of Kalamazoo passing through small towns and points of historical interest. The trail is a favorite ‘rail to trail’ destination for hikers, bikers, cross-country skiers, and snowmobilers alike. On this year’s winter guide cover, Mount Bohemia in Mohawk is spotlighted. Mount Bohemia, or Bo Ho as it’s affectionately known in the ski industry, is home to one of the most unique skiing opportunities in the Midwest. Known primarily for its extreme skiing, Mount Bohemia is a true four-season destination on the shores of Lake Lac Labelle.
