Autumn Bucket List20 Ways to Welcome the Season

For many, Autumn in Michigan is the best season. Mother Nature puts on her most colorful display, the temperatures are just right for bundling up or sleeping in, and the holiday season officially begins. Halloween gives us the fun and fright, Thanksgiving brings the warmth of family, and Christmas will soon cloak us in good will and good cheer. Even without all the holiday happenings, fall is a time for plenty of activities that make us happy and human. To help you live the season to its fullest, My City Magazine has crafted a list of our favorite ways to welcome the season. Grab your favorite jacket, a handful of friends and have a great time!
