2.) Murals

When you’re strolling the downtowns of the Brighton-Howell Area, you will notice murals painted on tons of businesses. Some are new additions courtesy of Howell’s Art Week, and some are classic community staples. They all make for a great backdrop to the perfect selfie or an artsy picture of the sun setting over small-town America.


3.) Sunflower Fields at Munsell Farms & Schell Family Farm

Late summer is the best time to come and visit if you’re a fan of sunflowers! Fields at Schell Family Farm and Munsell Farms are bursting with sunflowers that time of year and the bright yellow against the crisp blue sky makes for a gorgeous Instagram photo that your followers will surely love.


4.) Howell Peanut Alley

It’s no secret that this alley is a popular spot in downtown Howell. Oftentimes you’ll see senior pictures being taken, however, it’s also a great spot for couples, families, or a stunning selfie! The alley gets decorated for each season so be sure to visit Visit during every season for new decorations and different colored lanterns.
