Top Things to Do Outdoors in Spring

Between blossoming gardens, an unbeatable fishery, and unbelievable birding — plus 100 miles of trails made even more gorgeous by wildflower growth — there’s plenty to usher in spring in the Great Lakes Bay.

Wander through 110-acre Dow Gardens, where 22,000+ flowering bulbs and 35,000+ annuals cover every inch in color. (And don’t miss its four-story canopy walk, or Butterflies in Bloom — both a must.)

Carve your own path on scenic trails, coast through town on tandem bikes, cast a line, or board a Great Lakes fishing charter — but slow down long enough to soak in the season.
