Fall is such a beautiful time in Northern Michigan. You will want to visit a couple if not more of these amazing events near Petoskey in the Fall.
I love enjoying the Fall by taking photos of the beautiful colors, having hot apple cider and bundling up in a sweatshirt and going to a few of the many events located near us in Petoskey. There is so much to do that a lot of people don’t know about. Here are some of my favorites so more people can enjoy them too.
