Filing just one annual tax return can be stressful for most people, but at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service, the tax-savvy team calmly files thousands each tax season. The network of Detroit tax centers—a subset of a nationwide chain with more than 7,000 locations—specializes in individual federal and state income tax returns and their tax professionals boast between 200 and 500 hours of tax law training. Offering services that are often more affordable than do-it-yourself software, staff tax experts also back their handiwork with an accuracy guarantee; clients are reimbursed for any penalties that result from a staffer’s error. Returns also come with free online filing, which reassures taxpayers with round-the-clock return status alerts and saves them the hassle of wondering whether the Monopoly Man has received their papers yet.
Throughout the year, the 91-acre Charles L. Bowers School Farm educates students of all ages about science, agriculture, and livestock. But as the season's change, so does the farm's lineup of family-friendly outdoor activities, welcoming guests of all ages for autumnal activities including corn mazes, pumpkin picking, and wagon rides. Like the 1958 Plymouth Fury, the farm's corn mazes come in both haunted and unhaunted varieties, challenging explorers of all ages with 2.5 miles of twisting, turning paths. Should they find their way out, guests can reacclimate to life on the outside by striking up conversation with the resident rabbits, sheep, and llamas. From there, they explore the pumpkin patch for a perfect pie or jack-o'-lantern candidate or ride one of the farm's ponies, which turn into pumpkins at midnight.

Praised by patrons and local press, Ridley's Bakery Café crafts hearty sandwiches with quality ingredients on hand-sliced bread.

Teeth crunch through sliced cucumber, roasted red pepper, and lemon-herb dressing atop the turkey garden club ($6.50), while stomachs fill pastry vacancies with a rotating selection of savory 10-ounce muffins ($4.75), packed with herbs, seasonings, vegetables, and cheeses. Miniature explorers sail across the top of a 12-ounce bowl of creamy chicken-wild-rice soup ($3.35), occasionally docking at the edge of a bread bowl ($2 extra) or mistaking a piece of poultry for India.
Board-certified physician Dr. Salvatore Cavaliere applies his deft surgical skills to enhancing countenances suffering from depilated hairs or the effects of time. A complimentary consultation gives patients a chance to discuss the upcoming eyebrow transplants or face-lifts with their physician and select their brow donor from a lineup of Sesame Street puppets. During the 60-minute eyebrow transplant, a specialist numbs the treatment area with local anesthesia and typically implants between 50 and 100 hairs from elsewhere on the patient's body, restoring brows thinned or damaged by excessive plucking, burns, or injuries. After several weeks, the transplanted hairs fall away and normal hair begins to grow into the client's choice of design, whether it’s a slender arch or bushy Möbius strip.
