Fall is here, and there’s no better season to celebrate Michigan’s Great Southwest! Here's our plan for an awesome autumn -  


- taste each caramel apple flavor at Kilwin’s

- find a fresh new fall outfit at Lana’s Boutique

- visit the Farmer’s Market for a fall spray from Black Dog Flower Farms

- drink an Oktoberfest beer (we hear there’s a tasty one at Silver Harbor Brewing, Sister Lakes Brewing, and The Livery!)

- ride the Halloween Train at Eden Springs Park

- go apple picking at Nye’s Apple Barn

- walk over crunchy leaves at Sarett Nature Center

- take Biggby’s pumpkin spice lattes to the bluff

- discover a new fall candle smell at The Candlestick Maker

- taste the pumpkin balsamics and find your new favorite dip at The Olive Cart

- paddle one last time down the Paw Paw River with Third Coast Paddling (visit their Facebook to make sure the weather permits!)

- eat fall pizza (The Livery and Silver Beach Pizza both have one!)

- go to a Family Fun Night at the Silver Beach Carousel (have you seen their spooky themes?!)

- take in a fall sunset at Silver Beach County Park

- go treasure hunting for unique finds at Urban Garage Market, Blue Moon Vintage Market and Antiques on the Bluff

- find a new book to read at Forever Books for those cool autumn nights when you curl up on the couch

- indulge in some donuts and apple cider at Piggott’s Farm Market and Bakery

- sample some delicious wines and take in the fall colors along the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail
