Michigan Favorite Places with Flowers #MIFavoritePlaces

Now that spring is in full bloom, five Michigan lovers got together to share their favorite floral spots and places to stop & smell the roses (or lavender, peonies, etc). Check out the suggestions below for more Michigan travel inspiration!

Here are some of my favorite places to frolic among the flowers, shared @cassondra.wanders

1๏ธโƒฃ Grand Hotel – Mackinac Island
Officially open for the 2021 season, @grandhotelmichigan grounds are always a showcase! From the Secret Garden to a colorful array of Spring Tulips, and don’t forget the classic red Geraniums lining the World’s Longest Front Porch. The floral flare continues throughout the interior of the hotel, Grand Hotel is always in full bloom. ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿด๐Ÿšฒ

2๏ธโƒฃ Dow Gardens – Midland
All about the flower power, Marigold’s can be seen lining both sides of the street around Midland. @dowgardens is no stranger to nature’s rainbows – boasting 110 acres of Botanical Garden. You can find friendly florals around every bend. With rows and rows of Daffodils, hidden bridges galore, there’s so much to explore. ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒฟโ›ฉ

3๏ธโƒฃ Uncle John’s Cider Mill – St. Johns
This time of year, @unclejohns_cidermill Apple Orchard is in full blossom with hundreds of flowering apple trees. The official Spring opening is scheduled for May 27. The dreamy golden Sunflower Fields come to life around mid-summer. This our absolute favorite time to visit and pick our own Sunflower bouquet while sipping on cider and snacking on donuts. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŒป


A few of @frommichiganwithloveblog favorite places to admire flowers are…

1๏ธโƒฃ Centennial Park in @DiscoverHolland
๐ŸŒบ During summer, many tropical flower varieties are planted throughout the park, and itโ€™s absolutely beautiful!
๐ŸŒบ On one side of the park is a 10×12 foot โ€œBook of Ozโ€ composed of thousands of living plants.
๐ŸŒบ Besides flowers, there are gazebos, a fish pond, and statues. Thereโ€™s even an historic 20 foot rock fountain in the center of the park.

2๏ธโƒฃ Cherry Point Farm in Shelby
๐ŸŒผ This farm is an amazing destination for all flower lovers.
๐ŸŒผ Back in 2019, the original lavender labyrinth was destroyed by harsh winter weather but was replanted. While it will take time to reach its full glory, if you visit in mid-late July, youโ€™ll be able to enjoy some blooms!
๐ŸŒผ In the center of the labyrinth is a flower & herb garden thatโ€™s just as gorgeous. ๐Ÿ˜ All the plants are categorized and planted in an intricate & beautiful pattern.
๐ŸŒผ There are also fish boils held Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday evenings starting late June & a market selling fruits, flowers, herbs, baked goods & more!

3๏ธโƒฃ Living flower wall in South Haven
๐ŸŒธ This time last year South Haven reopened newly reconstructed Center Street with a living wall of flowers!
๐ŸŒธ If youโ€™re looking for a beautiful, photographic spot this spring & summer with your family or friends, head over to this beautiful flower wall.
๐ŸŒธ Also plan a visit to The Bailey Museum & Gardens, which is reopening in June. This is on my must see list after being closed last year.


@mrswebersneighborhood has so many spots to love, from downtowns to greenhouses ๐Ÿ’ a few favorites are:


@heavenlyscentherbfarm. This hidden gem in Fenton that is absolutely worth a stop to purchase flowers or just walk the grounds. Check out the gift shop or purchase unique succulents. The selection is incredible! They also have tons of fairy ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ garden supplies.

๐ŸŒผ @cranbrookhouseandgardens. Roam the property for ๐Ÿ†“ and make sure to look out for the butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹ garden and hidden tree…itโ€™s magical โœจ

@howellnaturecenter. Visit mid-summer to check out the animals and see their incredible gardens in bloom. Itโ€™s the perfect spot for kids and adults!

๐ŸŒŸ Bonus: A local flower farm here in Howell is @brightside_blooms. Check her out for the cutest flower stand ever! ๐Ÿ˜


@lansing_area_littles shared their top 3 in the Lansing Area:

1) @horrocksfarmmarket
Their greenhouses are amazing ๐Ÿ˜ All. The. Flowers are out for the season already. Plus, their indoor selection canโ€™t be beat. My daughter is partial to the rainbow colored roses ๐ŸŒˆ Horrocks has locations in Lansing and Grand Rapids. Make sure you have time for more than just flower picking when you visit. Itโ€™s one of our favorite places to explore!

2) @michiganstateu has endless amounts of flowers. ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒผThe @msuhorticulturegardens are stunning and their childrenโ€™s garden is a must if you have kids!
Bring a picnic and enjoy MSUโ€™s grounds and architecture while youโ€™re there โ˜บ๏ธ

3) @countrymill , located in Charlotte, has the most epic Sunflower field. ๐ŸŒปThey pop up towards the end of July (so save this post!) and make for gorgeous pictures. It just so happens that their blueberries are ripe right around that time too ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ˜‹


@allnatural.adventures‘s great recommendations!

๐ŸŒผ With all the wonderful wildflowers blooming, one of my current favorite hobbies is identifying Michigan wildflowers. There are so many great parks and natural trails with wildflowers to enjoy. Check out my earlier post and reel showcasing the early spring wildflowers at Aman Park. Later in the spring and summer, look for these pretty spiderworts and daisies at Millennium Park in Walker!

๐ŸŒผ Anyone else geeked about gardening this summer?! Countryside Greenhouse in Allendale is my go to place for my summer flowers and vegetable plants. A trip to the greenhouse walking through rows and rows of beautiful flowers is always a treat. If you have dino lovers in your family, be sure to greet the friendly T-Rex near the entrance!

๐ŸŒผ One of my all time favorite places to view flowers in Michigan is at @meijergardens. In addition to the amazing sculptures and children’s play areas, Meijer Gardens has beautiful foliage displays all year long. The indoor Tropical Conservatory is a wonderful place to see exotic plant life you don’t usually get to see in Michigan! In the summer, one of my favorite spots is the Scarletti sculpture surrounded by a lovely meadow of wildflowers.
