Visit an Apple Orchard
In our opinion, there is no better way to spend an afternoon than walking through one of Michigan's many apple orchards. Wander the rows of trees picking yourself a bushel of delicious apples and afterwards enjoy some donuts and cider. You really can't ask for a more perfect day.
