Best Fall Walks: Minneapolis-St Paul

Autumn in Minneapolis

City View In the Fall

Exploring downtown Minneapolis-St Paul condos & lofts for sale this season, you’ll be surrounded by the colors of fall. Here are a few leaf-peeping ideas to complement your home hunting.

Summit Avenue

Walk this 5-mile stretch from the Cathedral of St Paul to the Mississippi River—or for just as far as you wish. The stately Victorians are some of the most inspiring examples of St Paul real estate! And they’re at their most resplendent now, showcased in nature’s oranges and golds.

Indian Mounds Regional Park

It’s a great time for a tree trek! Starting at Mounds Boulevard at Earl Street, it’s a breathtaking mile. And there’s a famous vista over St Paul’s Mississippi River valley.

Minnehaha Falls

Most Minneapolis visitors love Minnehaha Falls for its 53-foot waterfall. In October, the brilliant autumn colors might just upstage the natural brilliance of the falls. Experience nature’s soul-soothing beauty our oasis in the city, or any of the beautifully kept parks throughout Minneapolis.

Along the Riverbanks

The Mississippi River’s bank turns golden in autumn. And the St. Croix River overlook at Afton State Park (25 minutes from St Paul and 40 minutes from Minneapolis) is worth a peek this time of year. Soak up the oak, birch, and aspen glow. Gaze at an eternal landscape: native prairie grasses in their golden season.
