Fall is peeking around the corner, are you ready to head to an apple orchard soon?
The dropping temperatures we’ve seen in the last few weeks have been a cool reminder that summer is winding down. With fall right around the corner, many families may be wondering what to see and do in the mitten during autumn.
A seasonal fall favorite across Michigan and the country is a visit to the apple orchard; the ripe apples, fresh cider and delicious doughnuts are inviting and definitely worth the trip (enjoy the doughnuts in moderation, of course!). Here are four favorite orchards in Southeastern Michigan for you to check out soon!
