October things to do?

We travel to the area every year. This year we will be going in mid-October. Anything special going on? Places to visit for fall colors?

mid-October is a good time for fall colors in the southern part of state. head south along the river on Hwy 61 toward Winona. Don't have to go all the way to Winona but that's a nice drive no matter where you cut it off

By the way, you don't have to leave Minneapolis for great fal colors. It might be past peak then but Lake Harriett would be a good spot to see fall colors. Take a stroll around the lake and parts of the walkway is like a tunnel of color in the fall. Pretty area.

I also love the Grand Avenue and Summitt Hill areas in St Paul in the fall. The big oaks and maples along those roads carry a lot of color.

October weather is usually pretty nice to get outside. Many city parks to walk, and state parks to hike, bike, camp. Fall colors are beautiful. It's also a good time to pick apples and pumpkins at orchards.

The zombie pub crawl is pretty crazy. I only did once because it gets to be too many people, or zombies. The Haunted Basement is pretty good at the Soap Factory. Yikes!

There's always theater, art exhibits, music, burlesque shows, too.
