Southeast Michigan Holiday Activity List

I am a firm believer in focusing on one holiday at a time; therefore for me Christmas officially begins after Thanksgiving. With so many things to do around the area, there is no place like Southeast Michigan for the holidays. Below, I’ve picked my 13 favorite Christmas events that will get you in the spirit of the season.
1.  Edsel and Eleanor Ford House – Grosse Pointe Shores
November 24 – January 7
One of my favorite to visit during the holiday season. See my post about it here.

2. Ice Skate at Campus Martius
November 18 – March 4
Super cute date night or night out with the family.

3. Detroit Markets
I am so beyond excited about these little markets and cannot wait to visit them soon.

4. Crossroads Village/Huckleberry Railroad
Select days in December
I have never visited before, but definitely on my list of somewhere I would like to go.
