The long, lazy days of summer will soon give way to the spectrum of autumn colors. With that in mind, a trip to Southeastern Minnesota to include historic, scenic Lanesboro, Minnesota, as a stop would be part of a perfect autumn adventure.
If you enjoy outdoor adventures like hiking, biking, tours, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, or playing golf, Lanesboro is the perfect place for you.
If you enjoy wine tasting, going to the theater, dining, shopping, or ice cream, Lanesboro is the perfect place for you.
If you enjoy art and art inspired creations, Lanesboro is the place for you.
The Root River and the Root River Trail follow each other and both run right through the middle of downtown Lanesboro.
All that and more in one area! Hope to see you soon. Until next time . . .

At Stone Mill, we have been brainstorming about what activities we want to have during the day. Visions of sugar plums have been dancing in my head!
