(SHELBYVILLE, Mich) - Now is the time to visit Bay Pointe Inn & Restaurant on historic Gun Lake, as the leaves begin turning vibrant yellows, oranges and reds signaling the onset of the autumn season.

This year's route travels some 130 miles through Allegan and Van Buren counties, past farm markets, wineries, antique shops and other exciting attractions. Cities, including Martin, Allegan, Fennville, South Haven, Bangor, Lawrence, Paw Paw and Kalamazoo, are waiting to be explored as trees, adored with their fall colors, canopy the Michigan highways and backroads.
