Depot to Depot: Self Guided Fall Color Tour and Contest 2022

October 01 - October 31

Experience Michigan’s Beautiful Autumn; and a Fun Fall Tradition.

Visit Muskegon presents the 18th Annual “Depot to Depot Fall Color Tour”

This October we invite you to celebrate the vibrant colors of our woods, dunes and water…and win prizes! Take your car or bike on this self-guided color tour; stretching from the Muskegon South Pierhead Light to the White River Light Station.

Wind your way along Lake Michigan. Travel the historic West Michigan Pike Byway. Soar over a canopy of fall colors. And see the scenic roads of Muskegon County in all their autumn glory.

See the sites, snap some “selfies” and discover our local shops, restaurants, attractions and more.
