Looking for daily inspiration and ideas for things to do with kids this week? From at-home family fun, to festivities…
If you’re looking for a day full of family fun this far, make a trip to Northville. Have a spooky good time in the historic downtown, plan a fieldtrip to Stemville or check activities off your Fall Bucketlist.
Downtown Northville has plenty of free, easy to access parking and Main and Centre street are closed to cars making it the perfect place for families to explore with kids. Spend time playing games in the street, hanging out at the fountain or grabbing a bite to eat at one of the many outdoor dining options.
SKELETONS ARE ALIVE
Skeletons have taken over downtown Northville beginning October 1st! They are playing games, shopping, and offering plenty of free entertainment for all ages! Take pictures and support local businesses as you explore the streets. A few of our favorites are Browndog Ice Cream Barlor, Bee’s Knee’s Pottery, and we can’t wait for brunch at Toria.
OPEN PLAY AT STEMVILLE
If you’re looking for indoor play time check out Stemville. The hands-on learning play center is fun for all ages and the perfect place to spend a chilly or rainy day.
ANIMALS, CORN MAZES + MORE AT MAYBURY
Maybury s one of our favorite places to visit. Say hi to the animals and take a tractor ride to the corn maze at Maybury Farm. Stop in the State Park to let the kids run around the playground and take a nature walk on the trails.
TRAIN RIDES + TREATS AT THREE CEDARS FARM
Three Cedars Farm is our favorite place for fall playdates. The littles love the Barn Yard Playland (there’s a wooden train playset and a moving one to ride). We love the pumpkin patch and corn maze. And everyone loves the donut and cider!
DONUT STOP AT PARMENTERS
Stock up on cider and donuts at Parmenter’s. The local favorite offers all your apple flavored favorites.
