Detroit Corner: Fall in the D


Looking for something to do this fall besides hitting the apple orchards and cider mills? Detroit offers a variety of activities you can enjoy alongside your pumpkin spice lattes.

  • Eastern Market: Many people think that Eastern Market is open just in the summer, but their Saturday Market runs year-round. Besides fruits and vegetables, there are different programs to check out such as mixers and cooking classes. There are also a variety of business and restaurants to check out.
  • Dequindre Cut: A few blocks away from Eastern Market is the Dequindre Cut, a two-mile recreational urban path. Formerly a Grand Trunk Railroad line, the Dequindre Cut is a predominately below-street level greenway which includes paved separate lanes for bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Fall colors and bright graffiti makes this a gorgeous walk.
  • DequindreCutMidtown: There is so much happening in Midtown (and all over the city!) that is hard to keep tabs on what it the newest, trendiest thing to do. Midtown is home to a variety of restaurants, breweries, shops and museums such as the Detroit Historical Museum and the DIA, just to name a few. (If you are going to stop into the museums, the Historical Museum offers free admission to everyone and the DIA to residents of Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties!)
  • Fowling: Combining two well-loved sports, bowling and football, fowling is basically bowling with a football. The Fowling Warehouse is located in Hamtramck and offers an open lane package for only $10, but they recommend reserving lanes if you are coming with a large group. There is a bar onsite and you can bring your own food.

Don’t just stop heading into the city because it is cooling off outside. Detroit offers something for everyone and if you give it a chance, you may find something unique and incredible.
