Autumn has arrived! Although the temperatures are cooling down, this is still a great time to get outside and enjoy the beauty and bounty of nature before the snowflakes start to fall. We’ve included some options for great fall festivals, farms with apple and pumpkin picking, and (of course) football below.
Take in some history and satisfy your sweet tooth at the Dexter Cider Mill. They are the oldest continuously operated cider mill in Michigan, and they are now open with fall hours, Wednesday – Sunday, 9am – 5pm. In addition to natural cider, the Mill also offers a variety of delicious baked goods and weekend entertainment. Visit them at 3685 Central Street in Dexter.
Discover a rainbow of fall colors throughout the metro area. The Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum is open every day from sunrise to sunset for a quiet walk with beautiful scenery. Stroll along the river or enjoy the view from a canoe at any of the local parks – Gallup, Island Drive, and Bird Hills Parks are some of our favorites.
Celebrate the change of seasons at the Kensington Metropark Fall Festival. Enjoy hayrides, pumpkin picking, cider-making and beekeeping demonstrations, and magic shows. Kensington Metropark is located at 4570 Huron River Parkway in Milford, MI, and is open October 8th and 9th, 12pm – 4pm.
Of course, a blog post about fall would be incomplete without some information about upcoming football games in the area. Be sure to keep an eye on the University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University football schedules, whether you want to watch, attend or just avoid the traffic!
