Fall Attractions & Things to Do


Autumn in Detroit comes complete with plenty of refreshing sights, sounds, and tastes of the season. The weather in September (our personal favorite month of the year) stays very comfortable and allows boaters to soak up a few last days on the lake. Kids head back to school and the Cider Mills open their doors. Tailgaters grill up burgers in anticipation of another season of Lions Football. And the change of colors is certainly a site to behold. Fall is a great time in Detroit!





Cider Mills

An autumn rite of passage in Detroit is a trip to an area Cider Mill. From late summer through Thanksgiving, visitors flock to local mills for some tasty apple cider and warm donuts in inspirational outdoor settings. The best part of a visit to many of the cider mills is that you get a history lesson at the same time. Some of the more popular like the Franklin Cider Mill in the Village of Franklin and Yates Cider Mill in Rochester date back to the early to mid 1800s and offer visitors fascinating insight into the cider-making process and history of the area itself. Check out the State of Michigan Website for directions to a nearby Cider Mill!




Fall Colors -- newsupnorth


Color Tours

From late September through late October, the arrival of glorious colors is Fall's most recognizable signature in Michigan. An absolute "don't miss" during your visit is one of the many Fall Color Tours. Although the most spectacular colors are seen in northern Michigan, a few of these tours and plenty of delightful scenery can be found right here in the Detroit area. No time for a full driving tour? No problem! Detroit area Parks are a great place to take in the Fall colors during an afternoon of hiking or canoeing. Keeping a camera handy is highly recommended during this time of year!




Lions Football

Love of high school, college, and professional football is an epidemic in Detroit. But the most eagerly-anticipated event for thousands of loyal Detroit Sports fans is the kickoff of the Detroit Lions home opener in September. With a spectacular new home at Ford Field and state-of-the-art practice facilities, the team has set a benchmark in professional sports. Built in 2002 adjacent to Comerica Park in the Foxtown entertainment district and integrated into the old Hudson's warehouse, Ford Field offers fans great NFL action in an innovative architectural setting. Check out a game or take a tour of this amazing facility!
