It happens every year. Warm summer nights transition into crisp, cool fall mornings. Deep green leaves turn into vibrant reds, oranges and yellows before falling off the trees. Sundays become game days.
From changing colors to changing menus, here’s what to expect from fall fun, fashion and food at the GMRENCEN.
When you think of fall, what do you imagine? Whether it’s crisp leaves crunching beneath your feet, cool wind whipping through your hair or beautiful fall foliage all around you, you can experience it all here in Detroit. The Detroit RiverWalk is the perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of fall. It also happens to be one of the city’s most Instagrammable hot spots, along with the GMRENCEN.
Leaves aren’t the only colorful fall foliage to capture your attention this season. From giant sunflowers to dainty mums, light yellows to dark reds, nothing showcases the look of autumn like a beautiful floral arrangement. Fall is the perfect time to treat yourself or a loved one to a little something special – like a personal bouquet made by Ashley at Ashley’s Flowers.
Change is in the air, so why not change up your fitness routine? Whether it’s Running for Brews or a Chili Cook-Off and Tailgate, there’s always something to do at RenCen Fitness. As you draft your to-do list this season, be sure to throw in a few fun events at RenCen Fitness. After all, balance is key.
Extra layers are essential for fall. With the weather getting chillier, it’s time to talk about scarves, sweaters and stylish jackets. Everyone has their own fall style. For a fresh city look, check out Pure Detroit’s line of cozy hoodies to keep you warm this season. If that’s not your thing, the GM Company Store has plenty of thick jackets to represent all your favorite brands and protect you from the cold.
Dive into a pile of fall by experiencing all the flavors Panera has to offer. From traditional bowls of turkey chili or warm grains to something sweeter like Panera’s cinnamon-themed seasonal menu, this really is fall “food as it should be.”
Nothing warms the soul faster than a hot cup of soup. With 12 delicious flavors prepared each day, Zoup’s got you covered in the soup department! From classics like Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque, Clam Chowder and Old-Fashioned Chicken Noodle to explosions of flavor like Pepper Steak, Jamaican Bay Gumbo and Ginger Butternut Squash, you’ll stay warm and cozy all season long.
Who says s’mores are just for summer? Even though the weather is getting cooler, there’s still plenty of time to warm up next to a blazing bonfire. Because of this, Potbelly recently made a brand-new s’mores cookie for the fall. S’mores season isn’t over just yet!
A list of fall flavors would be incomplete without including pumpkin spice. Starbucks has certainly come prepared for the changing seasons, offering delicious drinks like the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, Salted Caramel Mocha and of course the PSL. It may be considered basic, but it’s a classic for a reason.
Fall is the perfect time to plan sweet dates and activities. As the weather cools down, heat up with a special date night for you and your significant other. You never know what you’ll find to do in Detroit, whether it’s a crisp walk along the Riverfront or a romantic Sweetest Day dinner at Joe Muer Detroit.
High above the city on the 71st and 72nd floor of the GMRENCEN, Highlands Detroit welcomes you to enjoy fall from an elevated view. No matter what your plans are this season – a quick drink after work, a party with your closest friends or an unforgettable night of elite dining – this year will truly be extra special with the November opening of Highlands.
There’s plenty of fun, fashion and food at the GMRENCEN this season. Be sure to check these, and more, off your fall bucket list and share your experiences with us on the GMRENCEN Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
