Travel Insider: September 2017

Sep 19, 2017

If you’re new to our newsletter, we welcome you! The Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area is full of one-of-a-kind things to do, and this month we’re excited to feature two very fall-friendly events — the Smoke & Ale Festival in Chelsea and the University of Michigan Fall Festival. There's even an article providing a greater festive autumn overview! We are also pleased to share with you a behind-the-scenes look at the historic Willow Run bomber plant and preview The Academy of Early Music 2017-2018 season. These two "hidden gems" are true treasures!
