Visit Muskegon presents the 19th Annual “Depot to Depot Fall Color Tour”. Discover this beautiful Michigan beach-town during the glow of Autumn. And experience this fun, fall tradition!


This October Muskegon County invites 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 on a dual zipline. And see the scenic roads of Muskegon County in all their autumn glory.
