It's going to be another great weekend for fall color exploring here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Why not print off some Road-Tripin' Bingo cards from Explore Minnesota.

In the last few weeks, Amie and I have taken in fall colors at Beaver Creek Valley State Park, Whitewater State Park, Mill Lacs Kathio State Park, Nerstrand Big Woods State Park, and Lake Maria State Park. While each park was at a different stage of transition to fall foliage, all were spectacular in their own way.


Fill up your central Minnesota bingo card by seeking out pristine lakes, pumpkin patches, vintage campers, nationally renowned golf courses and more. Suggested scenic drives in the region include the Lake Mille Lacs and Otter Trail Scenic Byways.



  1. Print out your cards or load onto your phone.
  2. Hit the road and chase the fall colors.
  3. Mark off the items you find along the way and see if you can get a bingo before your co-travelers.
  4. Share pics on Instagram of your adventures and bingos using #ExploreMNAgain.

You can download Road-Tripin' Bingo cards for all five of the Minnesota regions HERE.
