According to this article ranking the 50 states for fabulous fall seasons, Minnesota landed at number 2. Sure that's pretty good out of all 50 but come on, we should be #1 and here's why!

1. Fall Leaves

I'm convinced there is no better place to see the most amazing colors that nature has to offer. Check out when the leave colors will be the best!

2. Apple Everything

I love apple ANYTHING! You can make pies, cider, butter, applesauce, the possibilities seem endless. Make it an adventure and pick your own apples in these local orchards.

3. Pumpkin Patch Adventures

This is a MUST on my list every year. First for the family pictures, second to get some decor for my front step but most importantly for family fun! Check out this Readers Digest favorite!

4. Fall Fashion

Hoodies, scarves, boots, I love them all. This is where everything in my closet really stands a chance at the spotlight. Check out the new trends at the Rochester Women's Expo or score a $400 shopping spree from us!

5. MEA Weekend

It's a Minnesota kid thing! I'm pretty sure we are the only ones who get to experience this extended weekend that's always been a mini vaca for me and my kids. This list should give you some ideas for activities!

6. Fall Beers

YUM! This is the perfect time to go check out a few breweries in Southern Minnesota. Get a ride on the trolley with their Microbrewery Tour.

7. Corn Maze

This Minnesota staple can provide hours of entertainment! What may seem like an easy task, it's amazing how quickly you can get turned around in a sea of stalks! Check out Minnesota's biggest corn maze (and fall fun headquarters) a quick drive to the cities.
