Minnesota Fall Color Get Away

Root River Valley Fall Colors

Root River Valley Fall Colors

Labor Day has come and gone.  Cool, crisp nights are upon us and the first maples are starting to show their fall colors. 

South East Minnesota beckons you with vistas and valleys, hardwood forests, and plentiful wild life.

Farms form a patchwork quilt of crops awaiting harvest on the rolling country side.   The Amish dry their corn the old fashioned way with rows of corn shocks standing tall to catch the fall breezes.

Lanesboro, Minnesota and the Root River Trail offer an excellent venue for enjoying the fall colors.  Freshly fallen leaves crunch under your bike tires as you ride under the fall canopy bordered by bluffs on one side and the Root River on the other.

After an enjoyable day of biking, savor dinner in one of Lanesboro’s fine restaurants and then take in an evening at the Commonweal Theatre.  The theatre features 2 plays this fall season: “The Odd Couple” and “The Rainmaker”.  Shows are performed Thursday through Monday each week.

Lanesboro has lodging options suitable to any taste from  hotels, to inns, and bed and breakfasts.  Your bed and breakfasts hosts are there to help you get the most out of your stay.  Hillcrest Hide-Away B&B offers mid-week special rates.  Make Lanesboro your destination for your fall color get away.
