If you’re looking for a day full of family fun look no further than Northville. Whether you want the charm of a historic downtown or an adventure in nature, the city offers the best of both worlds.


Maybury State Park + Petting Farm

Spend time outside! Wander the trails at Maybury State Park, go fishing, play on the universal playground and visit the Maybury Petting Farm! It’s a full day of fun.

Shop The Farmers Market + Picnic at Mill Race Village

The Northville Farmers Market is every Thursday from 9am to 3pm. Shop local vendor and growers and get all the ingredients you need for a delicious picnic, then take a walk through history at Mill Race Village.

Stay Cool at Stemville 

Reopening plans are still in the works but when it opens, put Stemville on your list of places to visit – especially on a super hot or rainy day. The science based play place is relaxing for parents and inspiring for kids.

Fairy Door Tour Downtown

Bring a little magic to a summer day and bring your kids to downtown Northville to search for fairies. Their doors are everywhere! You can print out a map and see how many you can find.

Family Dinner AND Dessert at Guernsey

Sit down, relax and enjoy a delicious fried chicken and sides at the newly renovated Guernsey Farms Dairy restaurant (or order take out!) and sit under the trees and enjoy a scoop or two of ice cream – they have all your favorite flavors, including ones you won’t find in the stores! You can also enter to win a FREE scoop a week for a year! Enter to win:
