Spring is coming and these activities will get you in the mood for warm weather.
We're finally at the end of February, which is technically the shortest month, but it can feel like the longest when all we want is to go outside and watch the flowers bloom. There are plenty of things to do in Michigan this March that will reawaken your desire to get out and have fun. There are parties, opportunities to connect with nature, and ways to just relax and take the pressure off.
