Apple Orchards & Cider Mills – Updated for 2019

For me the first sign of fall (other than kids returning to school), is the start of the apple picking season. We are lucky to have so many great orchards and cider mills in the Ann Arbor area. Cider Mills are already open for the 2019 season with u-pick orchards starting to open Labor Day weekend.

Ann Arbor Area Trunk or Treats

Trunk or Treats are very popular events to replace Trick or Treats. Kids head to a parking lot and visit decorated car trunks instead of going door to door. Ann Arbor Trunk or Treats are usually held in advance of Halloween.
