Fiery fall displays in Harbor Springs

Harbor Springs is known for its Indian summers, which means the warm weather can often last well into fall.

Foodies shouldn't miss the annual Taste of Harbor Springs festival held every September. Running for decades, the palate-pleasing event showcases local food, wine, and craft beer. Things don't slow down in the winter, when Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands serve up some of Michigan's best downhill skiing.
