As Michiganders we know all about seasonal changes. We’re experiencing one right now as Fall Equinox is officially upon us. Soon you might not be able to wear shorts or need to pack sunscreen everywhere you go, but that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of things to do in southeast Michigan. Here are five things you must do this fall in metro Detroit.

Get Some Cider and Donuts From a Cider Mill

There’s something about warm cider and cinnamon donuts that scream fall. Whether it’s the cider warming you up on a brisk autumn afternoon or the surrounding nature, a trip to the cider mill is essential to making the most out of the season. There are so many great cider mills to choose from, so be sure to try them all!

Pick the Perfect Pumpkin

Your family is going to need a cool pumpkin to flaunt on your front porch when Halloween rolls around, and the best place to get one is at a pumpkin patch. You can turn it into an afternoon activity for the whole family and pick out the perfect size for your needs. Be sure to check out these six local places to find your perfect pumpkins this autumn.

Hike Michigan’s Beautiful Nature Trails

There is no denying the beauty of the colorful autumn leaves falling from the trees, and the best way to experience that is by hiking through one of the many southeast Michigan nature trails. We gave you plenty of options for nature trails in metro Detroit that offer up beautiful photo opportunities, even more so in autumn.

Get Lost in a Corn Maze

A fall bucket list is not complete without the mention of corn mazes. This prime fall activity is a great activity for a fall weekend afternoon as you can spend hours trying to get out of the elaborately designed mazes. The Grand River Corn Maze, Bestmaze Corn Maze, and CornFun Corn Maze Adventure have already opened their mazes to the public, with many more southeast Michigan corn mazes opening in the coming weeks.

Go Camping

Camping is certainly fun in the summer, but there is a different feeling when you do it during the autumn months. Whether it is the bonfires at the campsite or the beauty of the changing nature around you, camping is always a fun fall activity in southeast Michigan.
