In Minnesota, we have a thing for fall colors. How could we not? A day out seeing some spectacular reds, oranges, and yellows is on every Minnesotan’s fall bucket list. We have picked out five Twin Cities parks to visit with the kids this fall to see some unique fall colors!
Check out these five Twin Cities Parks to visit, especially in the fall!
The park reserve has so much to offer. Numerous picnics areas, volleyball courts, biking, and walking paths, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, tubing in the winter, and so much more! Make sure to stop by the ski chalet for amazing sunsets too!
The lookout tower is fun for kids but magical for adults! Make sure to head to the top to see the fall colors!
Lots of trails for walking and exploring too! Plus, Medicine Lake is beautiful in the fall! Make sure to drive through the park to see it!
