M-22 voted America’s Best Scenic Autumn Drive

‘Tis the season for the changing of the leaves — and a new survey shows Michigan is home to the nation’s best autumn drive.

According to USA TODAY and 10Best readers, upper Michigan’s M-22 highway is the most scenic drive in the country to view fall foliage.

The
survey, which ended at noon Monday, ranked M-22 as America’s Favorite
Scenic Autumn Drive, competing against 19 other locations, including
Maine’s Historic Route 1 and Hocking Hills Scenic Byway in Ohio.

The
116-mile stretch of M-22 brings visitors through the peaceful
countryside and along the shore, past wineries, galleries and an amazing
path of colorful trees.

But don’t rush Up North just yet. The Foliage Network reports very little change in the leaves in Michigan’s lower peninsula, delayed by a gentle Indian summer.
