The smells of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and bonfires fill the crisp air. Fall is here and it is a great time to be happy you live in Michigan.
As the leaves begin to change, take the chance to enjoy time outside with your family and friends before winter comes. Here’s a list of just a few of our favorite fall activities:
  1. Visit one of Michigan’s many apple orchards and pumpkin patches.
