Dexter

Apple cider, model railroads, and  pie-eating contests --walk through Dexter's tidy downtown and you'll feel like you've wandered onto the set of a Hollywood movie. Just seven miles outside Ann Arbor, nestled alongside the Huron River, this community of nearly 3000 boasts a top-ranked high school, the state's oldest running cider mill and three large woodland parks. 

Spend an afternoon of hiking, canoeing or cross-country skiing then grab a cup of locally roasted joe at Foggy Bottom Coffee House or enjoy a treat at the Dexter Bakery. Looking for something a bit more urbane? Why not sample the award-winning microbrews at Jolly Pumpkin Brewery or savor the French cuisine of Bistro Renaissance. Better yet, catch and cook your own spring-fed  trout. For nearly 185 years, Dexter has been a fresh-baked slice of small town goodness.
