A Minnesota Autumn Road Trip Guide | Jaguar of Minneapolis

As the temperatures begin to cool and the days become shorter, the new fall season begins to leave its mark on the Minnesota Landscape. Lush green trees come to life with vibrant reds, yellows and oranges as the state starts to resemble a painter’s canvas.

Don’t let this breathtaking time of year pass you by. Grab your keys and plan an adventure. A daylong road trip is the perfect way to take advantage of the gorgeous fall scenery that surrounds us.

Not sure where to start your journey? No problem! We have already made a list of some of the top spots to see the autumn colors in your Jaguar.

Mississippi River Bluffs

About two hours south of Golden Valley, MN, you will find the Mississippi River Bluffs. Part of the Great River Bluffs State Park, the Mississippi River Bluffs offer not only breathtaking views of the Mississippi River Valley, but some of the best fall color in the state. Peak viewing takes place from late September to early October.

North Shore

The scenic vistas, lakeside views and waterfalls of North Shore are the perfect compliments to the vibrancy of the lush canopy found in this area of the state during fall. Fill your Jaguar’s tank, hit the open road and take in the glory that is the Minnesota Landscape. Breathtaking views aren’t the only thing the North Shore has to offer. Take a tip down the North Shore’s “Culinary Highway”, Old Highway 61, for a quick bite to eat, or explore one of the areas eight state parks.

Lebanon Hills Regional Park

For an adventure a little closer to home, Lebanon Hills Regional Park is just a quick trip down the Interstate from St. Paul. With over 2,000 acres, Lebanon Hills offers plenty of hiking, biking and equestrian trails to enjoy the fall colors and lake views. Named of the top nine places to hike in the Twin Cities, this autumn destination is less than 30 minutes away from Golden Valley, MN.

Summit Avenue

Last, but certainly not least, our final pick for this season is just right down the road. Stretching five miles through St. Paul’s middle, Summit Avenue is lined with grandiose trees that were planted decades ago. Take a stroll between the Cathedral of St. Paul and the Mississippi River to take full advantage of the urban forest.
