The Morton Arboretum, Illinois
Truly an autumnal wonderland, the grounds cover over 1,700 acres of attractions including a museum, library, many gardens, and of course countless trees. In fact, there are more than 4,100 different plant species throughout the arboretum. These can be viewed on a hike, scenic drive, or by using one of the several bike paths available.
The Morton Arboretum is in the process of reopening and is currently requiring that all visitors purchase their tickets in advance. Tickets will not be available on site. For more information please visit the Arboretum’s website.
Peninsula State Park, Wisconsin
A picture-perfect place to pitch a tent this fall! This popular park offers over 460 campsites, hundreds of acres of colorful trees, shoreline views, and fantastic hiking trails. For cyclists, Sunset Bike Trail provides a safe and social distanced ride through the park through the changing foliage.
Visitors should be advised that although Peninsula State Park is open, certain attractions and sites are closed or open with limited access. Please visit their website for the latest updates and safety regulations.
Northshore Scenic Drive, Minnesota
Known as the “All-American Road”, this gorgeous drive spans seven state parks and hugs the north shore of Lake Superior. Not only is the drive breathtaking, there are lots of small lakeside towns with amazing restaurants, local art, and unique shops where visitors can find one-of-kind souvenirs.
While Minnesota is open to travelers, there are several advisories in place to help ensure the safety of both tourists and residents. This includes a face mask mandate. For more information and the latest updates please check here.
