Fall is so beautiful in the Twin Cities, and each year proves to be a favorite season of many of our Tommies! With cooler weather approaching, getting out and about in St. Paul and Minneapolis is the perfect opportunity to soak up the last of the gorgeous Minnesota weather.
5 Fall Favorites:
1.) Mill City Farmers Market
Tasty fall food, live music and an art market are calling your name! The Halloween Harvest Festival at the Mill City Farmers Market on October 29th from 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
2.) Changing Colors
Summit Avenue is the longest stretch of historical homes in the United States and known for its close proximity to the Mississippi River and to St. Thomas. This famous avenue is also home to trees dating back centuries and the leaves changing colors in the fall weather offer incredible views. After a stroll along Summit, you can warm up in Coffee Bene and enjoy a “Chaider” which is my favorite fall drink.
3.) Pumpkin Patch
Sever’s Fall Festival is celebrating their 20th year and will be open for one last weekend in October! Pick out a pumpkin to carve, get lost in the corn maze, make your way through the petting zoo, enjoy the live entertainment, and try some tasty fall treats such as the roasted corn, burgers, and mini-donuts.
4.) Run the Monster Dash!
There is no better way to enjoy the last bit of fall weather than a run. The Monster Dash is an annual tradition and you can find a wide range of costumes dashing about the streets of the Twin Cities. The race is on Saturday, October 29th and registration is still available online.
5.) Minnehaha Park
Minnehaha Park in on of my favorite parks in the Twin Cities, and is an outdoor space that promises incredible views no matter the season. During the fall, you will find locals roaming through the park and admiring the falls before picnicking under the shelter.
Enjoy Tommies, and let us know some of your favorite things to do during fall around St. Paul and Minneapolis!
