Not all places will be open or appropriate, but here’s a list of parks and other places to explore in Oakland County, as well as some other destinations that may not be good to visit during the pandemic, but can give you some ideas for future outings.  Of course please use all precautions to avoid spread of infection.

Be sure to call or check online to see if a destination is open:
