Fall Colors Reaching Peak on the North Shore

People Travel From Aroudn the World to See the Colors

Deep reds, vibrant oranges, and mustard yellow; the autumn colors draw people from across the world to the Northland.

“I just saw it on the internet, I saw the different colors and I said to myself, oh how I wish to see it

The autumn colors draw people from across the world to the Northland,” said Teresita Escobar, who is visiting The United States from the Philippines for the first time, to see the fall colors.

 “ I want to see the autumn leaves, yes, that’s my first purpose,” said Escobar. 

Though Summer is the major tourism season on the Northshore, the streets of Grand Marais is still bustling with people who travel to marvel at the change of the season.

With acres of land covered in birch, maple, and oak trees, The Minnesota North woods has no shortage of places to go to see the fall colors

“Some of our best drives would be up the gunflint trail, a 56 mile paved beautiful highway,” said Linda Jurek, the Executive Director of Visit Cook County.

Locals say the can’t miss attraction when it comes to fall colors, are the gondolas at Lutsen Mountains. 

The fall colors are at its peak at the end of September, through the beginning of October, and the seasonal businesses are still open during that time, so that visitors can make a trip out of seeing fall colors.

“A lot of places don’t get to experience the extreme color changes that we get to experience,” said Jurek.
