Lake Inn Lapeer
    3711 Hunt Rd., Lapeer; 810-667-09411; lakeinnlapeer.com
    It’s a little like eating a burger in front of a cow but at Lake Inn Lapeer, which has a seafood-focused menu, they’ve got igloos on the deck overlooking the lake, you know, home to pre-cooked sea creatures. All that is required to reserve a waterfront igloo is a willingness to spend $150 minimum on food and drinks Monday-Thursday or $200 minimum Friday through Sunday.

Catch some final fall feels at a cider mill
    We are very fortunate to have an entire season that basically revolves around leaves changing colors and gorging ourselves on apple cider and donuts, fresh from one of Michigan’s many delicious and beautiful cider mills and orchards, many of which remain open well after Halloween. Do-nut miss out on one last chance to get stuffed and stretch fall out a little bit longer.

Glenlore Trails: The Haunted Forest
     Through Nov. 15. 3860 Newton Rd., Commerce Twp.; glenloretrails.com; Tickets are $15-25
    
    Electric Forest may have been canceled and, frankly, that still stings, but there's a new illuminated forest experience in town to satiate our desire to feel anything other than recurring TikTok-induced depression and Twitter-fueled existential dread. For anyone like who needs to log the eff off for at least the duration of a half-mile trek through a magical and potentially haunted forest, there's Glenlore Trails: The Haunted Forest, an interactive and sensory experience in Commerce Township. Though it debuted in August as a non-haunted attraction, the light and design production team have pivoted to giving the people what they want: family-friendly spooky shit!
