Twin Cities Fall Activities Via Local Bloggers

Share

This round-up of fall activities is mainly brought to you by some of the area mom bloggers we’ve become acquainted with. Family Fun Twin Cities aims to practice what we preach (read: keep it local!) by showcasing some of the other talent around the Metro – -hit up the links below to discover some fall family fun courtesy of blogs we follow:

  • Jamie of Toys in the Dryer shares 10 Fall Treats, Activities and Crafts for Kids. (We especially like this one because it’s out of our niche yet we could totally see ourselves trying out many of these ideas!)
  • Samara of Simplicity in the Suburbs offers 18 Things to Do In the Twin Cities This Fall with plenty of orchard, pumpkin patch, and other seasonal suggestions.
  • Lisa of Twin Cities Frugal Mom tipped us off to Twin Cities Fall Fun via the Twin Cities Daily Planet. This article is packed with ideas for fall outings and includes a listing of fun local events like Grand Harvest (Oct. 11) on St. Paul’s Grand Avenue.
  • Kelly from Muddy Flowers details a family trip to the Twin Cities Harvest and Corn Maze complete with great photos.
  • And Stephanie of PhenoMNal Twin Cities gets us in the mood for Halloween by suggesting a free Haunted Museum Audio Tour at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

What are some of the other local blogs or websites you like to follow to get inspired for your family outings? Leave a comment and share your favorite!
