Minnesota Fall Color Getaway

After a sultry, humid August it was welcome relief this week to feel the cool breezes that remind us that fall is soon upon us.  We have gone from running the air conditioning all night to sleeping with the windows open.  What a relief!

Root River Valley Fall Colors

Southeast MN Fall Colors

Southeast Minnesota beckons you with vistas and valleys, colorful hardwood forests, clear trout streams, beautiful rivers 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.

Fall Colors on Root River Trail

Root River Trail Bridge

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 tree lined 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: “Enchanted April” and “The Turn of the Screw”.  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.  Make Lanesboro your destination for your fall color get away.  Mid-week is a great time to visit when you can have the bike trail or the river to yourself.  Check out the week night bargain on our web site www.hillcresthideaway.com for more details.
