Best Fall Activities in the Twin Cities

Fall is my favorite season, and with it come some of my favorite seasonal activities! Visiting an apple orchard or pumpkin patch is something I look forward to all year round. Here are some of my favorite things to do in Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota during the fall!

Pumpkin patch: Axdahl’s

Apple orchard: Aamodt’s

Fall drinks

Colder weather means it’s time for the best drinks…dark beers! Barrel Theory makes some of the best dark beers out there, and Waldmann is the epitome of a fall-themed brewery with its fireplace, vintage feel and history. But if you’re not a beer drinker, check out the new Emerald Lounge in St. Paul for some delicious and very vibe-y drinks.

Movie night: Alamo Drafthouse

We don’t often go to movie theaters anymore, but I’m all for watching a good scary movie on the big screen while enjoying delicious drinks!

Minnesota Zoo: Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Each year the Minnesota zoo brings in tons of artists to design beautiful and creative jack-o-lanterns, and puts them on display at night! Open now through November 5th, and make sure to get your tickets online before you go!

Holiday markets

It’s hard to believe it’s already that time of year, but holiday markets have started! Starting in late October or early November, you can find at least one holiday market happening every weekend.

Supper club

With the temperatures dropping quickly, it means it’s time for hearty winter food! And a classic Midwest supper club is the perfect place for all your favorites. We’re planning on hitting up the Laurel Supper Club in New Richmond, WI in November to kick off eating season. 😁

Activities for a Weekend in the Twin Cities

A few weekends ago my mom drove up from Florida to spend time with her favorite daughter and also Layne. Each time she visits, we try to pack in as many activities as possible, and I thought that sharing our schedule might help others looking for things to do in the Twin Cities! I’ve also included if reservations are required, which are accurate as of posting. (Masks are currently still required in Minneapolis & St. Paul)

May Monthly Favorites

May is my favorite month, and only partially because it’s my birthday month! I feel like I say this every month, but I can’t believe how quickly May flew by! It feels like yesterday that I was counting down 3 weeks until my birthday, and now I’m just another year older.Read More »
