Fall Activities to Do in Michigan

Michigan is one of the few states that gets to truly experiences all four season — sometimes all four in one day! The state of Michigan does a good job when it comes to celebrating the seasons and with fall upon us, it seems like good idea to suggest activities that you can partake in during the fall season.

1. Enjoy a Fall Color Tour.

Michigan has plenty of forests and those leaves soon turn from green to an array of warm colors. The month of October is the perfect time to take scenic drives through many cities in Michigan. Drive through areas in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, and Ann Arbor to view the best fall colors. To learn more about fall color tours, you can here.

2. Visit a Cider Mill.

Michigan has plenty of cider mills to choose from, but here are a few popular ones:

  • Franklin Cider Mill is located in Bloomfield Hills, and they offer cinnamon spice donuts and cider.
  • Yates Cider Mill is located in Rochester, Michigan, and it has been serving Michigan cider, donuts, and caramel apples for many years.
  • Parshallville Cider Mill is in North Ore Creek, Michigan and it is 136 years old.
  • Uncle John’s Cider Mill is located in St. Johns, Michigan, and it serves cider, hard cider, wine, and a collection of different donut flavors.

3. Get Out of A Corn Maze & Pick out A Pumpkin.

Michigan is known for growing corn, and once the harvest season is over, the corn fields turn into corn mazes! Corn Maze Adventure Park and Pumpkin Patch offer two challenging corn mazes and plenty of pumpkins to pick from. They also have petting zoos and bonfires in the evening. Another corn maze to check out is DeBuck’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. There, they have easy to difficult corn mazes to try, a pumpkin patch, and a giant slide.

4. Get Scared at A Haunted House.

When the season of fall hits, that means Halloween is soon to come! Get some screams out in one of these Michigan haunted houses:
