Sorry for the late post, thankfully, John S. reminded me that I hadn't posted this information yet.... oops! We are about one month away from our Michigan Fall Foliage tour and Smart Car Rally. October 10-12, 2014
  • http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f74/2014-michigan-fall-rally-tunnel-trees-82778/# We'll be meeting in the beautiful town of Petoskey, Michigan. Our base camp will be at the Americas Best Value Inn near downtown. Petoskey is a quaint lake side village that offers great places to shop with vistas overlooking Lake Michigan. It will be our starting point for a tour of the winding coastal road called, The Tunnel of Trees. Which, will lead us to one of the most famous Michigan restaurants, Leggs Inn. We'll lunch at this authentic Polish establishment on one of our Saturday stops. Last year, we had a fun and activity filled day with a group breakfast, foliage tour with stops, lunch at Leggs Inn, beach time with our Smart Cars and then crossing the iconic Mackinaw Bridge to a laugh filled evening dinner out and a Casino visit for a few of us. This year will be a bit of the same, but we are adding a Sunday trip to Mackinaw Island! We'll depart from the hotel in the morning for another run up the Tunnel of Trees to Mackinaw City to take the Hydro Jet Ferry over to the Island for lovely day of sightseeing before heading back to the hotel or departing for home. A few participants will be staying over Sunday night to take advantage of the Columbus Day Holiday. (While a few will be arriving early on Thursday night at hotel)
    AS A REMINDER, this event is free and there are no charges other than your travel costs and everyone participates at their own fun filled risk! :)

Potentially in Frankenmuth, the weekend of Oct. 9. I don't think it's set in stone yet but pretty firm.

Check out the "Michigan Fall Smart Car Adventure" group on Facebook.
