Droves of Segways meander past historic homes, factories, and miles of parks during Seg Adventures's Plymouth Area tours. On the list of sites to see is the Wilcox House, whose scandalous history is revealed during guided tours. Segway riders can free roam as well, exploring the city's attractions, markets, and public restrooms with a self-guided tour that lasts 60 minutes. Free roam sites include the Daisy Air Rifle–headquarters or the Alter Motor Car–factory.
The Dearborn Chamber of Commerce helms the annual Taste of Dearborn festival, amalgamating local eateries to dazzle townsfolk and visitors alike with culinary concoctions and lively libations. Each purchased ticket includes a map of the grounds and one wrist band that allows for unlimited access to a multitude of local grub hubs, including Crave, Bangkok 96, and Tria. Throughout the event restaurants will sling out complimentary samples as local bands treat hungry hoards to rich rhythms and scholarly lectures on Einstein's theory of close-mouthed mastication. Each eatery also serves drink specials at the cash bar for an additional cost. As an added bonus, Taste of Dearborn provides free gas-powered transportation to and from participating snack stations, saving guests the hassle of learning how to quantum leap.
The Haunted Kingdom sprawls across 65,000 square feet, with DJs, fortunetellers, and local celebrities shambling about an eye-defying dance floor flush with thousands of revelers dressed in their best getups. Lights pulse to body-shaking bass as silk dancers twist like spiders from the ceiling above dramatically lit skeletons.
The strumming of an acoustic guitar lets you know you’ve found The Northville Winery’s outdoor patio. Live bands regularly serenade guests enjoying the patio’s view while sipping on the winery’s selection of wine and hard cider, as well as beer brought in from Michigan microbreweries. Guests can get a taste of the house’s signature vintages in preselected tastings, which bring together a flight of five wine and cider samples. The tastings can include pours from Northville's bottled vintages or the tasting room’s special menu of ciders, which only flow from the winery's taps and the cider fountain at the owner's home.
With a vibrant red barn and rippling farmland as its backdrop, Three Cedars Farms lures pumpkin pickers of all ages with an eclectic stock of autumn trimmings and full-family hayrides. Decoration packages allow fall enthusiasts to harvest seasonal ornaments from the farm's country store, including an ornamental cornstalk and a half-bale of hay in which to hide proverbial needles, threads, and half-finished quilts. Blossoming mum plants can enliven terraces with the bright shades of fall, and small pumpkins add quirky splashes to stoops with their variegated shapes, tones, and raspy comments in the voice of Ernest Borgnine. After picking out decorations, families can clamber aboard a wagon-toting tractor for a scenic hayride past the property's twisting corn maze and eye-pleasing scenery.
