Orchard Country - Macomb County, Michigan
The map shows just a little of another surprising feature of the southeast of Michigan. This is what I call Orchard Country. In a part of Michigan that many think of as solid urban sprawl, there is a series of trails, roadside stands, gorgeous small towns and some of the best fruit farms and orchards in all of Michigan.
The area I call Orchard Country is roughly centered around Almont with Metamora in the west and Armada in the east. This area is home to more than 25 festivals and fairs. more than a dozen orchards and farmers' markets and nearly two dozen parks, nature centers and trails. If you get tired of having fun outside, there are nearly a dozen museums and art galleries, as well as, great shops in every one of these unique towns.
