    19 Ways Michigan Does Fall Better Than Any Other State

    LEAVES AND COLORS AND CIDER AND DONUTS AND HAYRIDES AND...

    Today is the official first day of fall, so this seems like a good time to remind everyone that Michigan does fall better than anyone else.

    1. First off, there are the trees.

    2. Whether they be red...

    3. Or yellow...

    4. Or a gorgeous mix of both.

    5. The Upper Peninsula becomes even more beautiful than usual.

    Yoopers will recognize this as the Upper Tahquamenon Falls.

    6. And there's something about a crisp fall day that makes a sunset on the coast of Lake Michigan even prettier, too.

    7. Sometimes you get an early frost on a Michigan fall morning, but the view makes the chill worth it.

    8. When there isn't a frost, there's usually a little morning mist on your local lake.

    9. Michigan has some of the best cider mills in the country, hands down.

    10. This stuff is basically liquid gold.

    11. And nothing will ever, EVER top the combo of a freshly made cinnamon-sugar donut and a cup of freshly pressed apple cider.

    The cider has to be served in the customary Dixie cup, of course.

    12. We grow pumpkins like pros.

    13. And we're pretty good at carving them, too.

    Deeee-troit Jaaack-o-lantern!

    14. Best BELIEVE you're going to get your butt scared off during one of our haunted hayrides or Halloween corn mazes.

    15. Those leaves we mentioned before? Yeah, they make our already beautiful college campuses even more beautiful.

    16. And there's something about that fall weather that's perfect for a game of cornhole at your tailgate.

    17. Not to mention comfortably cheering on your team in a light jacket instead of in the sweltering heat.

    18. Even though summer is over and Oberon is gone, you can still enjoy some of Bell's delicious Best Brown Ale.

    19. Maybe around a traditional Michigan bonfire to warm you up on a chilly fall evening.

    Basically, all the other states wish they were Michigan in the fall.
