Welcome to September in the Twin Cities! We’re still finding much of our time spent at home or close to it, but we’re seeking out ways to enjoy time outdoors during the beautiful Minnesota fall season with our family. Looking for something fun to do this weekend with kids? Jump on over to our September Weekend Family Guide.
Ultimate Guide to Fall in the Twin Cities __________________________________________________________________
Our Ultimate Fall Guide is here for you when you’re ready to browse apple orchards, pumpkin patches or fall color tour ideas. Inevitably, there will be some closures, changes and cancellations. Please always call or check ahead to confirm an activity before heading out.
Nature Play ideas
You can still social distance in September and enjoy the benefits of fresh air and sunshine at parks across the Twin Cities. Our Parks Search tool includes more than 800 local and regional parks & playgrounds to explore. Or, if you need to stick close to home, we’ve compiled more than 65 Fun Nature Play Ideas for Kids. Many of these you can do right in your own backyard. Beat boredom with a big dose of green!
Minnesota State Parks
State parks, recreation areas, and other public lands remain open to the public in September, but visitor centers are closed until further notice. State parks naturalist programs have been temporarily suspended. Are you familiar with the state parks of the Twin Cities Metro? Read up and plan for your family’s next nature adventure!
