SceneryTerrific scenery going from hardwood forests to towering pines, through farmlands orchards and lake shores. The highlights being the roads themselves.
Drive EnjoymentGood twisties around the Allegan Dam, smoothing out in the 55mph sections. Then lots of turns again along the scenic Lake Michigan lake shore. Several sweeping turns also exist along the way.
Tourism OpportunitiesIf you start off early, Village Inn in Allegan serves a great breakfast. Then passing the Allegan Dam there's great scenery but also terrific fishing at the dam during the spring and fall salmon runs. When you get to Fennville, stop in at Su Casa restaurant for a meal and a cerveza. Just west of Fennville you'll find Crane's orchards and cider mill (hands down the best cider donuts in the state). All along M-89 you can find antique stores, ice cream shops, produce stands and if you don't mind a couple mile detour you can tour the Fenn Vally Winery (watch for the signs). The scenery can't be beat when you hit Lakeshore Drive, bring your camera if you are at the beach(either Pier Cove or West Side county park) at sunset. That camera can also come in handy to take pics of deer and geese at the Todd Farm on 118th Ave. After you turn onto M-40 keep an eye out for The Grill House as featured on the Discovery channel and the Travel channel. You can grill choose and grill your own steak if that's your thing. Finally if a burger and a beer is more your speed, try Bubba's Sports Bar and Grill in downtown Allegan (try the Bubba Burger, my personal favorite).
