I love autumn. Football, apple picking, hot chocolate, pumpkins, fall festivals. There's so much to see and do in Minnesota this season, so I decided to make a list and share it with you! I'm hoping to get to some of these events around the state, but there's only so many weekends in a month!

1. Apple Festivals and apple picking is a must! I always have high goals when it comes to what I'm going to do with all the apples I pick. It usually doesn't turn out quite the way I picture in my head, but it's always fun. Here's a list of places around the state where you can take in some apple fun.

2. Pumpkin patches, hayrides, corn mazes...always fun for the whole family. There are many places to choose from around Minnesota!

3. Oktoberfest! I've heard that New Ulm is the place to be to celebrate. However, the Twin Cities Oktoberfest is a pretty darn good time too. It's held at the state fairgrounds.

4. There's nothing better than a drive through one of the many beautiful parts of Minnesota when the leaves are changing. You can find out where the best leaf peeping takes place each weekend on the Minnesota DNR website.

Enjoy all things autumn in Minnesota!
