Matt Lauer touts U.P. as fall color destination

Duh. As if we didn't know that ...

Travel Coach Kim Schneider is also writing about the U.P. color.

A colorful drive to the "peak"

The view from Brockway Mountain Drive

In this video clip, Today Show travel editor Peter Greenberg talks about his favorite fall color destinations, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula leads his report. Host Matt Lauer chimes in about the great mountain biking he's found in the UP. And they know what they're talking about.

This Absolute Michigan color tour of the Keweenaw Peninsula covers one of the country's most spectacular driving routes. At the summit of Brockway Mountain Drive, the highest American road between the Alleghenies and the Black Hills of South Dakota, watch for eagles riding the currents of the wind.

But the time head to the state's northernmost reaches is now. In today's fall foliage update, Travel Michigan reports color in the UP to be at peak.

Just don't believe what this Weather Channel report says about Traverse City. As the Travel Michigan update reports--and you'll easily see when you cruise the back roads from Charlevoix to the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula--fall color's a bit behind schedule. You can see hints of what's to come - and it's looking good - but the full show's not expected for at least a week.
