Studies indicate that smells, sounds and tastes trigger some of your happiest memories. And when Autumn returns to Michigan, its not surprising that all of your senses come alive and the memories of the season come flooding back. Be it the wafting aroma of baking apples, or the vision of landscapes painted with blazing color, we welcome the feel of crisp cool days, the taste and snap of a just-picked apple and the sounds of rustling leaves beneath our feet. The beauty, clarity and unforgettable feel of autumn is beckoning, and with it comes the warmth of a campfire, the taste of fresh pressed apple cider and the comfort of cozy sweaters and warm boots at a tailgate gathering. Hooray! Its time for fall to cast its spell in Greater Lansing. For the full list of family fall attractions, visit our Fall Family Fun website!
