It’s an all-out magical time of year: autumn in the Upper Midwest. And with southern Minnesota’s world-famous fall foliage fast approaching peak, now’s an incredible time to visit the Twin Cities.
Appreciating Minnesota’s Superlative Falls Colors at Windows on Minnesota
Here at Windows on Minnesota, you get a dazzling bird’s-eye view of Minneapolis’s urban forest and canopies beyond: a ravishing vista of mingled reds, oranges, yellows, and browns, the full palette of seasonal pigments.
And our downtown perch also serves as a great jumping-off point for up-close, fresh-air explorations of that vivid foliage. We’re close to city greenspaces with lovely forestscapes, including the largest in Minneapolis’s nationally celebrated park system, Theodore Wirth Regional Park, and the emerald Twin Cities ribbon along the Mississippi River. It’s also certainly a joy to take “leaf-peeping” daytrip drives away from the city and soak up the colors of the countryside: Steer in virtually any direction and you’ll be amid prime fall foliage.
