Autumn season has to be my favorite time of the year. Cider, Pumpkin Spice lattes, college
football, and hoodies are some of the top reasons why I enjoy fall so much. Not to mention,
fall brings the opportunity to go on hay rides, a haunted house, bon fires, and a delicious
Thanksgiving dinner with loved one.
I am anxiously waiting for the moment when my boots start stepping on crisp leaves on campus. Fall
semester is always an indicator of new friendships starting and re-kindling relationships from the
Here are some of my suggestions for activities to do in the fall:
Wiards – Founded in 1837, located in right here in Ypsilanti, offers both day and night activities
for students. Activities at Wiard’s include cider mill, hayride, u-pick pumpkins and applies.
During the evening, the goblins come out and offer 2 haunted attractions in one convenient
location. The haunted hayride includes free cider and donuts with the ride. With the location only
being 15 minutes away from campus, it’s a great night out with friends.
Apple Charlie’s – This has been my go-to since I was a child. Charlie’s is a family-owned apple
farm located about a 25 minute drive away in 38035 S Huron Rd, New Boston, MI 48164. The
Orchard and coder mill offers U-pick orchards, a bakery, hayrides, and an animal farm. The best
part of Apple Charlie’s is free admissions and parking!
Greenfield Village– Just a 25 minute ride down the highway will lead you to Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village. Starting on select days from October 11, you’ll find 1,000 jack-o-lanterns lighting the way through a path with 11 treat stations, with characters greeting you. A ticket for Greenfield Village takes you back to a turn-of-the-20 a non-member adult is $15 and $5 for parking.
