SemSeg's Segway experts equip urban explorers to cruise through Detroit at up to 12.5 miles per hour during self-guided tours. A brief orientation covers proper techniques for turning, stopping, and impromptu jousting. Then, motorists hop aboard scooters and travel up to 24 miles on a single charge. The long battery life allows motorists to cruise down the Riverfront, circle 14-acre Hart Plaza, and crisscross the Rivard Plaza in a single trip. Though SemSeg encourages DIY tours, their guides lead weekend tours through downtown and down the Riverwalk.

Much like a classic horror film, Panic at Pine Stump Hollow scares visitors with authentic, suspenseful attractions rather than 3-D special effects. Actors dressed in terrifying ensembles and lit only by dim torches and the light of the moon prowl the half-mile haunted forest walk in search of nervous explorers. The trail, which features a pitch-black tunnel and a "vortex" passage, eventually leads visitors to the haunted house, where even more macabre ghouls wait to scream, snarl, and whisper bad stock advice to wary walkers. The terrors eventually give way to a relaxed group area, where a warm bonfire welcomes those who made it through the attractions in one piece. Though inciting fright is important to the staff, helping out is just as high on their to-do list—a portion of the attractions' proceeds goes to support the St. Clair County Child Abuse and Neglect Council.

Gerald and Elisabeth Blake established Blake Farms in 1946 with the help of their 13 children. In the 60-plus years and several generations since, Blake's has spread their operation to three locations across the metro Detroit area. More than 500 acres of orchard and farmland compose the family business, and during certain seasons, that land allows average citizens a chance to give their robotic fruit harvesters a rest and come pick their own apples, strawberries, peaches, and pumpkins. Blake's becomes especially busy with the arrival of autumn, when it hosts an annual fall festival, and Christmastime, when its U-Cut tree program lets families team up to chop down their own tannenbaum.

Shannon and Cortney Casey have journeyed all over the state of Michigan in pursuit of their passion: wine. Michigan By The Bottle started as a blog, but their readers' demand for locally produced wine spurred them to open their own tasting room. Now, though the pair still creates wine-focused videos and interviews Michigan winemakers, they spend much of their time inside the Michigan By The Bottle Tasting Room. Between walls hung with works by Michigan artists, they pour wines from six Michigan wineries.

These six partner wineries represent the state's four major wine trails: Lake Michigan Shore, Leelanau Peninsula, Old Mission Peninsula, and the Southeast Michigan Pioneer trail. Each is also one of Shannon and Cortney's favorite boutique wineries, chosen in part because they use only their own estate-grown or locally sourced fruit.

Chateau de Leelanau Vineyard and Winery makes wines and ciders from fruit grown on the family farm. Peninsula Cellars expresses its region through cherry, apple, and grape wines, and Domaine Berrien Cellars’ proprietors handcraft wines from 21 varietals. Chateau Aeronautique Winery, with an airplane-themed decor, places emphasis on the setting of a tasting, and Gill's Pier Vineyard and Winery is modelled after boutique vineyards of France and California. The family-run Sandhill Crane Vineyards works with local ingredients and contributes to local charities.

In the Michigan By The Bottle Tasting Room, servers pair these libations with snacks ranging from sustainable cheeses to organic single-origin chocolates, each made by in-state producers. In addition to special wine tastings, the tasting room also hosts events such as food-and-wine pairings as well as onsite massage and yoga. Open to the public Wednesday through Sunday for drop-in tastings, the tasting room holds private and special events on Monday and Tuesday.

Creepy clowns, bloodied ghosts, and decaying zombies lurk behind every twist and turn at the Slaughtered at Sundown haunted house. Voted the best haunted attraction of 2011 by WDIV readers, the house's pitch-black passageways wind through a chilling cemetery, simulated scenes of violence, and plenty of loud noises and pop-up scares.

If they happen to survive the darkness, intrepid guests can brave a trip through the terrifying countryside on the Slaughtered Town hayride, where they'll encounter horrifying figures such as a headless horseman who seeks revenge against those who always beat him at Marco Polo. Those lucky enough to emerge from both attractions unscathed can calm down and enjoy their own snacks and beverages at Slaughtered at Sundown's bonfire area.
