Your visit to Tecumseh can be filled with lots of family fun and adventure or it can be as relaxing and peaceful as you desire. Tecumseh has many fun things to see and do. Step into the welcoming warmth of a small town that moves only as fast as you want it to, from our free Art Trail Tecumseh sculpture exhibit to canoeing on the River Raisin Run we offer something for all ages to enjoy. From taking a pleasant stroll through our historic downtown and stopping to enjoy a bite to eat at one of our fantastic restaurants, or enjoying a walk on one of our many walking and hiking paths, there is a great blend of activities for everyone.

Feel like taking a wonderful Foodie Tour? If so, Tecumseh's Taste Experience is a great way to spend the day. Four innovative food establishments have joined forces in Tecumseh. Tecumseh's Taste Experience invites you to discover the destination dining offered at Evans Street Station and the handcrafted cheeses and chocolate of Boulevard Market. Take a tour of Pentamere Winery and JTrees Cellars and spend some time in their tasting room. Relax at The British Tea Garden over a steaming cup of tea, served with scones and crumpets. Have a craft beer at Tecumseh Brewing Company. Stop by to see what culinary delight is being served up at 3 Dudes & Dinner. 

Feel like playing a few rounds of golf? Grab your friends and enjoy a day of golf at Raisin Valley Golf Club where tight fairways and undulating greens challenge even the most accomplished golfer. This 18 hole public golf course has a natural beauty all its own, it offers both a challenge and a peaceful setting as it follows the River Raisin along the back nine. Tecumseh is also home to the Hantz Golf Club of Tecumseh where members can enjoy a friendly game of golf on beautifully manicured fairway and greens.

If the kids feel like playing a round of golf... you are in luck! Stone Mountain Family Fun Center offers putt-putt golf featuring a waterfall and many other obstacles to make the course fun and challenging for all ages. End the day with a cone or special ice cream treat right next door. Stop by the splash pad at Cal Zorn Park to cool off after a great day of family fun.

Tecumseh offers great photo opportunities for a photography buff with its historic charm and interesting architecture. The community offers homes, barns and a large array of interesting historic buildings to capture with that perfect digital image. Take a stroll along the Indian Trails walking path and you just might see a doe with her baby fawns scampering through the woods along the river. Mallard ducks, Canadian geese, blue herons or an occasional swan can be seen along the shores of the mill pond, and if you are lucky you may see a bald eagle fly overhead! If you watch patiently you might catch a glimpse of fish jumping out of the water to catch their daily meal. Not a day goes by that you won't spot a young family or grandfather and grandchild fishing along the shores.

Tecumseh is in a great geographic location in southeastern Michigan with other visitor adventures opportunities just a short drive from downtown. Take a peaceful ride on the rails with the Southern Michigan Railroad and enjoy the beautiful autumn color tour. Fall also brings the opportunity to pick delicious apples, carve pumpkins and enjoy fresh cider at Kapnick Orchards. Hidden Lake Gardens, a botanical garden and conservatory, just 10 miles west of Tecumseh, offers indoor and outdoor opportunities to enjoy plants and nature from birding to wildlife all year long.

Michigan International Speedway is just a short drive to the west and offers a great chance to see professional race car drivers such as NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jimmy Johnson, and other driver favorites like Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and other NACSAR stars, showcase their skills at recording breaking speeds.
