Traverse City's orchards, vineyards, forests and villages create a beautiful patchwork of orange, crimson, scarlet and gold. Whichever route you chose it will be the perfect one for a drive that combines fall color with views of the bay, visits to wineries and roadside fruit stands, and unforgettable meals at several charming restaurants.
