The days are getting shorter and the weather a little cooler and that's making many of us want to put on a cozy sweater and head north.
Fall colors in Traverse City are expected to peak around October 5-12 but there are still plenty of biking and hiking trails to enjoy. Not to mention some great winery and beer tours.
Traverse City is in the medium risk for COVID-19 which means that area is one step a head of West Michigan.
"We're in a zone that's able to be pretty much open. So we do have some restrictions to how many people can be in a building but our hotels are open, restaurants, breweries, shops. Everything is open to explore," said Jillian Manning from Traverse City Tourism. She also gives a good reminder that you'll still need a mask for indoor activities.
