The fall season in the Mt. Pleasant area is something special to experience every year. From exploring Papa’s Pumpkin Patch to enjoying the fall color at a local park, there is always something to appreciate. 

This year the Mt. Pleasant Area Convention & Visitors Bureau wanted to see fall through the eyes of its residents and visitors. Through the #FeelsLikeFall Instagram photo contest, this was able to happen. Residents and visitors were encouraged to share photos of what fall in Mt. Pleasant looks like to them, and share it with us on Instagram. Below is only a few of the amazing photos received that truly capture the fall experience in Mt. Pleasant.

The Mt. Pleasant area is full of delicious restaurants with many local favorites to choose from. The photo below submitted by @vintrofeos is just one example of fall flavor that is waiting in Mt. Pleasant. With locally grown fall produce, Vin Trofeos offers fresh food such as zoodles, pumpkin spice breadsticks and more!

Isabella County is also full of beautiful county parks. Just west of Mt. Pleasant is local favorite, Deerfield Nature Park. Deerfield was voted the most beautiful park in Isabella County by Pure Michigan, and I think it’s safe to say this photo shows why.
