Technically, summer may be over with the start of September -- but the fun is far from finished! Warm temperatures often linger into November, thanks to the warm Lake Michigan waters -- perfect weather for a stroll on the shore, a round of golf, or a cycling tour. In good years, the water's usually even warm enough for swimming for most of September!
If anything, autumn is an even better time than summer for boating, sailing, paddling and fishing. The fall forests are perfect for hikers, horseback riders and cyclists, and any golfer can tell you how much more restful the courses are in fall. (Besides, there are all those beautiful fall colors -- a great backdrop for any outdoor adventure!
