A favorite fall activity for many Michiganders is going to an apple orchard and cider mill. From Genesee County to Lapeer County and points beyond, there are a lot of options. Here are five local spots to visit this fall.

One of the best is Spicer Orchards. Did you know there is a winery at Spicer Orchards? It is awesome. I would much rather have a glass of wine before and after picking out my pumpkin, instead of a cup of cider.

Actor Dax Shepard is a fan of  Diehl's Orchard and Cider Mill. You may or may not know, that Dax grew up in Michigan and goes to Diehl's every year for cider and donuts.

Mueller's Orchard is on my list too. Rounding out my list are Past Tense in Lapeer, and Montrose Orchards. Both orchards of course offer cider and doughnuts, but Past Tense also makes homemade fudge, and you have to try a pie from Debbie's Kitchen at Montrose Orchards.

Make the most of the fall season, eat a doughnut, drink cider or wine, and go pick yourself a pumpkin. Enjoy.
