Local leaf peepers need not travel far this fall to catch the best colors — Michigan's M-22 near the Lake Michigan shoreline was recently rated the top scenic autumn drive in the nation by USA Today readers.

We beat out other top contenders, including the Hocking Hills Byway in Ohio and the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway in New York and were called "one of America's most beautiful tours." 



But, of course, we already knew that, thanks to Tim Allen and the Pure Michigan campaigns which have long declared northern Michigan the ultimate fall destination.
