I didn’t think about Fall Colors when I planned this trip. Saw some color on the Keeweenau Peninsula, but that’s the only place. Enjoyed revisiting the South Shore and Sault Ste. Marie. The Canadian Bushpilot Heritage Center in the Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, is an awesome place for plane enthusiasts. The best views of the Big Lake were on the North Shore where I spend my summers.
We took our tour counterclockwise starting in Iron River. We took the Ale tour, making sure to (safely) stop at each brewery as we made our way around the lake. Weather was cold but the colors were vibrant! By the time we were in Canada bus tours filled with tourists were traveling along the coast to get a peek at the peak colors. The Ale tour was strong until we More
We did this trip for our 40th wedding anniversary. We had a great time in a small RV.
Loved the contrast of the two Grand Marais’. Dick & Penny Vokes, Harbor Springs, MI
We just finished our first Circle Tour, with overnight stops in Duluth, Grand Marais, Thunder Bay, Marathon, Wawa, Sault Ste. Marie, Marquette and Ashland. We enjoyed the fall colors, waterfalls, and nature. Perhaps our favorite day was spent in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and the entire Upper Peninsula was amazing.

We traveled from 9/9/18 – 9/19/18 via motorcycle and loved the trip! Especially Wawa and Agawa Canyon. We also stopped at the Circle Tour Headquarter in Duluth! Deborah Decker & Robert Clark Camden, NJ
We tried to avoid the “big properties” for lodging, we found many options and would highly recommend the Hungry Hippie Hostel in Grand Marais. We met another couple on the Circle Tour and traded recommendations. Our favorite spot was the Big Bay Lighthouse B&B – the property was beautiful and the hosts were amazing. We also stayed at the US Coast Guard crews Quarters in Paradise, it was helpful to More
We decided to allow two weeks so we could do everything we wanted and that was plenty of time. We took our 33′ fifth wheel trailer and were worried about campgrounds due to fall colors, but had no issues finding a spot to camp. There were a few campgrounds that closed Labor Day so I did do some calling ahead once we were close. I did not pre-book camp sites. More
We traveled clockwise around the lake, starting in Munising, MI. We then traveled west to Duluth, MN, entered Canada and stayed in Thunder Bay. We then traveled to Terrace Bay, Wawa, and Sault Ste. Marie. We backtracked a little after that to hit the Tahquamenon Falls before voyaging back around east side of Lake Michigan. We loved the fall color and it even snowed on us in Wawa! The lake More
Our favorite spot was Crisp Point Lighthouse — 20 miles off the beaten path. The sign on the road says “umaintained road”. We tried with the trailer at first, but only made it 3 miles so we came back the next day without it so we could get there! Alan & Aleta Isaacson, Annandale, MN
