It's almost fall, y'all!

Autumn, oh, how we love thee. Let us count the ways!

The end of summer has arrived, and we sit on the cusp of true fall. Soon the weather will finally settle to its welcome crispness, and all things autumn will come into full view. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Minneapolis is here to guide you through some autumnal activities and share with you, what we believe are the better parts of the season.

Where to see fall foliage in the Minneapolis area

Depending on your activity level, and how far you want to travel, there are many opportunities to witness the grandeur of gorgeous golden and umber hues of fall throughout the Twin Cities, and beyond.

If you would love a leisurely 90-minute stroll through a beautiful and historic neighborhood, with Gilded Age mansions and cobblestone streets, all while taking in the mature trees and their tapestries of color, the Summit Avenue walking tour is perfect for you. Hurry fast, though. Tours only run through September 29!

Take this unique opportunity to see fall foliage from above the treeline with a fall color chairlift ride at Hyland Hills Ski Area! Bring the family for an evening of activities, including lawn games, raptor encounter, and make s’mores by the evening campfire. Enjoy folk music and a lantern-lit trek to the bottom of the hill.

Take your family to the beautiful Spring Lake Regional Park, and enjoy walking or riding bikes along the trails, rock climbing, slacklining, geocaching, cider tasting, and even a raptor encounter. The event even includes a free barbecue lunch!
