    With 4 distinct and beautiful seasons, Gaylord is a year-round destination for family holidays. The Gaylord weather forecast in the summer is generally warm, and this season is the best time of year to enjoy the area’s lakes and rivers. However, if you want to see the beautiful autumn colors of Michigan, plan your trip for after the summer months to see orange, burnt red, and yellow leaves before they fall. The winter snow makes for great snowmobiling, skiing, and sleigh rides. The more daring can even try winter rafting on the Sturgeon River.
