Day 2: Gaylord-Chicago (263 miles)

Join us for another amazing day by drive through the tree-shaded tunnel known as "one of the ten most beautiful highways in the United States." It is easily one of the best places to enjoy the fall foliage in Michigan. The winding road is hidden in the tunnel that was formed by the intersection of branches. It is accompanied by the red and yellow maple leaves on both sides of the road, which is breathtaking. Afterwards, we will enjoy a lovely farm tour to experience the fruitful harvest season in the golden autumn of October
