1. Westview Orchards Fall Family Fun Weekend Festivals
Westview Orchards, right here in Washington Township at 65075 Van Dyke hosts their Fall Family Fun Weekends throughout October every year. Celebrate the harvest season with tractor-driven wagon rides and run through the corn maze. There are straw, tire, and rope mountains, and the little ones can meet the barnyard animals at the petting barns, find their way through Spookley the Square Pumpkin straw bale maze, and run wild in the 3-acre playground.
2. Moonlight Hayrides
Stoney Creek Orchard and Cider Mill at 2961 W. 32 Mile Road in Romeo, just a quick 5-mile hop and sip from Washington Township, takes families on moonlight hayrides throughout October. Hop on a tractor-pulled wagon for a moonlit ride through the orchard.
There’s nothing spooky about the ride, but if you keep your eyes peeled and peer hard enough into the darkness, you might spot nocturnal wildlife along the way. After the ride, you can get cozy with a glass of cider and a donut at the bonfire.
3. Blake’s Big Apple Haunted Attractions
Blake Farms at 71485 North Avenue in Armada is just a short 13-mile drive from Washington Township. The farm is a great fall destination with loads of activities. Blake Farms is also one of the first pick-your-own orchards in Michigan.
So, head to the orchard early to pick your own apples and quench your first with a glass of delicious cider. Stay until after dark to enjoy a spooky evening with a haunted family hayride, explore the spine-chilling 3-story haunted barn, and play a thrilling game of Spookyland and Zombie paintball.
