Spend Fall in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Are you excited for pumpkin spice, changing leaves, and sweater weather?
What if all your favorite fall activities were in one area?
Maybe they are … the leaves are falling in Ann Arbor, Michigan! Here are some great ways to enjoy the season in the Ann Arbor area:
There’s nothing better than picking your own seasonal fruits! You can pick apples straight from the tree and pumpkins from the patch. If you’re looking for decorations, there’s a variety of mini pumpkins and gourds to choose from! Wasem Fruit Farm also has fresh apple cider and doughnuts. If you want something extra tasty, choose a warm apple, blueberry, or pumpkin doughnut.
Gaze at the colorful leaves and feel the brisk air in Ann Arbor’s many parks. Gallup Park is 69 acres and is right on the Huron River. There are boat launches for canoeing and kayaking and many playgrounds for children. The Matthaei Botanical Gardens include a conservatory, numerous gardens, and trails to hike or bike. On these trails, you’ll encounter creeks, bridges, and maybe even local wildlife!
Less than 30 minutes from Ann Arbor, you’ll find the area’s best and oldest operating cider mill! The Dexter Cider Mill has been operating since 1886 and offers unpasteurized apple cider, doughnuts, caramel apples, and homemade pies. This is a classic cider location for many in the Ann Arbor area, so it can get busy!
Fall is the best time to sample new beers! You can sip on some fall flavored beers from the Ann Arbor Brewing Company. Their Titled Earth Series Autumn IPA and Oktoberfest beers have rich, hearty flavors and an amber color that will remind you of the falling leaves.
Get in the Halloween spirit by traversing a 14-acre corn maze shaped like a werewolf! The Blast Corn Maze at Nixon Farms is located in Dexter and is fun for the whole family. Have kids that might not make it through the entire maze? There is a short, medium, and full corn maze exit for people of all levels. After the maze, enjoy a hayride around the farm, or better yet, shoot some corn cobs using the corn cannon!
