Shawnee State Forest, Ohio What's New
Spring freeze, drought leave corn maze, orchard operators worried about fall tourism season

Drought may shorten Great Lakes fall tourism
Great Lakes Echo (10/3)
A drought-shortened color season may blunt the impact of Great Lakes fall tourism.

Fall colors approach peak in Milwaukee, northern Wisconsin
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (10/4)
The leaf-watching season is in full swing in the northern half of the Wisconsin and they're approaching their most colorful in the Milwaukee area, though it could be a few more weeks before most leaves turn in the southern part of the state.

Erie region likely bright spot in Pa. for fall foliage
Erie Times-News (9/26)

New exhibit will help people find the best spots for fall color tours
UpNorthLive.com (9/14)
In just weeks the color show will begin across Northern Michigan and the Traverse City Visitor Center is helping people pick the best spots for fall color tours.

Take in the fall colors and some Michigan wines at the same time
