This is 47th in a series of 50 posts we are putting out throughout the years in anticipation of the celebration of our 50th Anniversary in 2015. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for the top things YOU love about Minnesota as well!
Who can turn down a cup of fresh apple cider? How about a warm apple fritter? A visit to the apple orchard this time of year is always in order. We are lucky enough to have many great options around the Twin Cities. You can enjoy a hayride, watch how apple juice and cider is made, or just head out to the orchard to pick your own apples. Most of the orchards do a great job of catering to the kids, so a variety of other things can be found from petting zoos to playground equipment. Meeting friends at the orchard on a crisp, fall afternoon is a great way to get out and enjoy the colors this time of year also. Pretty reasonably priced fun with a healthy treat at the end, this is definitely one of the things I love about Minnesota.
