One of the best things about living in Minnesota is the change of seasons and everything each season has to offer, and fall is one of our favorites. Just because the temperatures are beginning to dip, doesn’t mean there aren’t lots of fun things to do outside still!
Belle Plain, home of Emma Krumbee’s Apple Orchard and Scarecrow Festival, is just a short drive away. For a $5.00 admission fee, you and your family can enjoy farm animals, the Giant Hay Stack, Tombstone Forest, and the 31st Annual Great Scarecrow Display. We love the tractor-pulled wagons that bring you to the orchard and the Great Pumpkin Patch.
And if you’re a foodie, this is definitely the place to go to indulge in all your fall favorites! Caramel apples, fresh apple pie, and homemade fudge are just some of the sweet treats you can savor. For more event information, visit emmakrumbees.com/apple-orchard.
If you want to venture farther than your backyard to admire the beautiful fall colors, there are several spots close to Salem Green that you can check out. Take a short drive down Highway 3 into Eagan and Rosemount, both of which have beautiful scenery; stroll down Summit Avenue in St. Paul, which is lined with mature trees and beautiful Victorian homes; or take your bike down Minnehaha Parkway and River Road, where the Mississippi River offers a beautiful backdrop to the crimson, auburn, and gold leaves.
Be sure to post any of your Salem Green fall photos on our Facebook wall. We love seeing the community through your creative lenses.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy fall season!
