Our To Do List is a compilation of events and activities in Michigan we thought would be fun. We are only sharing activities a week out so you can also think of it as a last minute to do list. Our intention is to spotlight off the beaten trail activities, but that is not to say we won’t include something like, lets say Midnight Madness in Ann Arbor. We may even throw in something like the Star Wars Art Show at the UFO Factory in Detroit. Our goal is to share the list weekly either on Sunday or Monday.
To Do List: Week of Nov 30 – Dec 6, 2015
