There are many beautiful places to visit in Minnesota during the fall, and in this article I will be talking about a couple of the many places to visit.
The first destination I will be talking about is Minneopa State Park. This park is located in Mankato, Minnesota, and while it is beautiful year round, it is especially stunning in the fall.
The park contains a double waterfall that leads into a 39-foot drop over a gorgeous cliff. There are also 4.5 miles of trails within the park that are surrounded by trees that turn beautiful and vibrant colors during the fall. It is a great place to visit to take a hike and get some fresh air.
Another popular destination to visit in Minnesota during the fall is Taylors Falls. Taylors falls is a small town northeast of the Twin Cities. It is surrounded by bluffs and cliffs, and has many fun activities to offer.
You can head to Interstate Park in Taylors Falls to canoe, kayak, hike, and enjoy amazing views. The Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tour is another great option to experience the beautiful scenery.
There are also many restaurants in Taylors Falls that serve delicious and high rated food. The Drive In serves classic American food like burgers, fries, shakes, and root beer floats. It is a perfect place to stop and enjoy a delicious meal.
If you’re looking for more beautiful views, you should check out Split Rock Lighthouse, in the small town of Two Harbors. The lighthouse is located on a rocky cliff over a lake. Behind the lighthouse is a forest that turns bright yellow, orange, and red in the fall to add to the beautiful landscape.
A fourth, and final place that I’m going to be talking about is Cuyuna, which is about 2 hours northwest of the Twin Cities. Cuyuna is a city that has a ton of fun activities to offer.
There are beautiful and charming cabins that were built in Cuyuna Cove that offer a great place to stay during your visit. These cabins are close to the Main Street in Crosby, which has many restaurants and shops.
Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area is also near Cuyuna Cove. Here you can swim, kayak, paddle board, canoe, snorkel, and more in the gorgeous clear lakes. You can also explore the beautiful mountain biking trails near Cuyuna Cove as well. Overall, it is a great place to visit to enjoy the outdoors, and explore the city.
Clearly, there are many beautiful places to visit in Minnesota in the fall, and I have only named a few. If you would like to read about more places to visit, feel free to check out the websites below.
