Take This Gorgeous Fall Foliage Road Trip To See Minnesota Like Never Before

Fall is finally here. It’s time to enjoy cooler weather, plan our Halloween costumes, and pretend winter isn’t around the corner. But one of Minnesota’s best fall activities? The leaves – jumping in them, raking them and plain old admiring them. Leaf season starts a little earlier in the north and a little later in the south, but most of the state enjoys peak leaf season from mid-September to mid-October. Here’s a fall foliage road trip that you can use to find the most beautiful colors in Minnesota. Check out driving directions here.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

One good thing about this route is that, especially as you drive along Highway 61, you’ll be able to see bright leaves without ever stopping the car. Better yet? You’ll be able to see it all again when it’s time to go home. Be sure to use the DNR’s Fall Color Finder to find more information about peak seasons around the state, and let us know when you spot gorgeous fall leaves.
