Fall colors, pumpkins, apples, ciders, and fun of all kinds are right around the corner. In fact, if you’re planning on taking in peak foliage, the delicious varieties of apples, or any of the best things to do in the fall in Michigan, you’ve probably already made your plans, watched forecasts, and asked around to make sure you’re getting the best experiences.
But if you’re not from Michigan, and heard this is THE place to be during Autumn, we wanted to let you know 10 reasons you should NOT visit Michigan this fall.
#1 – Our apple cider is super fresh from our own Michigan growers. It’s probably even good for you. And you don’t need something else that’s good for you. You already eat salad!
#2 – Because of the size of our state, all of the lake frontage, and the slight differences in temperatures, fall foliage lasts for up to a month. That’s really too long. Let the leaves drop so we can rake and have done with it.
#3 – The scenic drives are too long. You don’t mind scenic drives but you also want them to be over with a little more quickly, say in a half-hour, as opposed to the famous Tunnel of Trees.
#4 – You don’t enjoy pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple orchards, cider, or donuts. They’re everywhere, and frankly, it gets old to see the abundance that Michigan provides for us.
#5 – There are hikes that appeal to all levels of hikers, and the foliage will be visible from the paths. But when you think of hiking, you’d rather make it out to be a miserable experience so an enjoyable one just won’t work for you.
#6 – You want fall to be over and winter to get here already.
#7 – You prefer your fall to be damp, chilly, and incredibly unpleasant. You want to be bundled up ASAP and don’t enjoy perfectly crisp and sunny sweater weather.
#8 – The leaves are just too vivid. Dying leaves should really be more dull and sad.
#9 – Tailgating is such a lame experience. The comradery of celebrating your team together, eating food off the grill, and having a cold beer – bleck. Not even fun.
#10 – Hard cider is one of the oldest known ferments and Michigan specializes in amazing local favorites. Peak season, freshness, and tradition just really aren’t your thing, so you’ll stick with your hard seltzer, thanks.
