Cooler days and chilly nights indicate the end summer, but those temperature drops allow vibrant hues to emerge in fall foliage. Early to mid October is peak season, so grab your coziest sweater and take to the trails of Nichols Arboretum, Raymond F. Goodrich Preserve amidst oak, hickory, and maple trees, or the Matthaei Botanical Garden. Rent a canoe or kayak on the Huron River at Gallup Park, Argo Park, or Hudson Mills Metro-park to see the color from a different viewpoint. Just outside the city, Parker Mill's Park features a mile-long, handicap accessible boardwalk. Admire the colors almost anywhere, but make your appreciation  intentional by hitting a park or preserve to take in the transformation.
