Fall is finally here in Michigan and everyone one is already dreading the time when there is snow on the ground. There are plenty of ways to have a good time during the fall season before everyone is wrapped up in their blankets for hibernation. Family friendly and inexpensive, there are so many things that can be done this fall here in Ypsilanti.

Going to an apple orchard is a fun way to celebrate the fall season. There is no better to spend fall than by eating cinnamon sugar donuts, apple cider and picking pumpkins. There are bouncy houses for the children as well as corn mazes, animal farms and play areas. And for the spooky season there the “Night Terrors” that goes on. A large haunted house that takes place at the Orchard once the sun goes down for a full night of screams and scares.
