While you may be planning to travel this summer and see the country, there is a lot for families to experience right here in the Wayne County area. Here are a few summer tips for families here in Northville, MI. 

Summer Tips for Families in Northville, MI

1) Visit the big city:

  • Detroit: The Motor City is the most populated place in Michigan. There is more to see and do than you can take in a single trip. Enjoy some of the city's amazing culinary scene and explore the Motown Museum this summer. 
  • Ann Arbor: Home to the University of Michigan, your family will enjoy visiting the Furstenberg Nature Area or Nichols Arboretum. A trip to Ann Arbor will be a fun and informative experience for your family. 

2) Explore a state park or recreation area such as:

  • Maybury State Park
  • Island Lake Recreation Area
  • Brighton Recreation Area

3) Visit Belle Isle Park: An island in the middle of the Detroit River, the nearly 1000-acre Belle Isle Park features an aquarium, conservatory, playground, and disc golf course.

4) Check out Lake Erie Metropark: Located near the point where the Detroit River joins Lake Erie, the Lake Erie Metropark is the perfect place for a family picnic and beautiful views of the lake. 

5) Consider making the switch to a private school: Are you or your children ready to make the adjustment to a private school? Have you found yourselves thinking about the benefits of an educational system that is unapologetically rooted in the Christian faith? Do you wish your child's academic experience was grounded in a Biblical worldview?
