Let’s Celebrate! It’s Fall In GR!

We did it! We made it to my favorite time of year here in GR!

At the beginning of this year I was aching for the first day of Fall because that meant the return of ArtPrize, and outdoor Apple Orchard adventures with the fam.

We all know how ArtPrize turned out but here’s a few items I am looking forward to exploring instead:

  • Patios in GR

    • yes friends, it’s true! Patio season and social zone areas are planned to continue for the forseeable future and into the early winter with warming elements about to start appearing. Check out our blog post HERE for our Top 10 Patio recommendations in the area.

  • Schwalliers Country Basked / Apple Orchard

    • I realize Klackles and Robinettes are both well loved – but let’s just have a quick convo about the charm of Schwalliers. Keep driving north on Alpine (you’re going to think you’ve gone too far, but keep going) until you arrive at a little slice of Americana, where the kids can play alongside goats, you can get lost in the large corner maze, and if you visit the farm store be sure to pick up the Farmer Wife’s famous Carmel Apple Pie. Every year we walk out with smiles, two dozen donuts, and a pie.

  • Celebration Cinema Movie Night at Studio Park

    • This one is fun! Bring a blanket/seating and enjoy a classic movie night downtown on the Lawn of the new Studio Park development

  • Mums at Meijer Garden

    • I am so very happy to report that Chrysanthemums at Meijer Gardens are STILL happening (YAY!). This is one of my favorite events and is sure to produce insta-worthy photos as well as great memories with the family-friendly activities throughout the Gardens.
