The River looks amazing with all the red, gold, and orange colors surrounding it. If you have not seen it yet make sure you do so before the wind blows all the leaves to the ground, which as we all know here in Minnesota could happen any day now. Don't let the chilly weather and the soon to be possibility of snow scare you away though, in St. Paul there is always plenty to do.
It's the last few weeks of the famous dowtown St. Paul Farmers Market open both Saturdays and Sundays and is just blocks from our hotel. If you have never been you need to check this out! It is by far one the biggest and best markets you will ever see. Think about how great your next slow cooker meal will be with fresh veggies from the market!
Follow up a weekend morning at the Farmers Market with a Fall sight seeing tour from Padelford RiverBoats. It's a unique way to not only see the color on the River but tour the beauty that is St. Paul. These tours run during the week and on the weekends. Visit Padelford Riverboats for more details.
Why not spend a chilly Saturday or Sunday afternoon learning, the new exhibit Lost Egypt will be opening at the Science Museum October 13th. This exhibit uses hands-on activities, real artifacts like a real human mummy, a recreation of real Egyptian tomb, and more to reveal how scientists use modern science and technology to uncover and understand the ancient civilization of Egypt. Sounds pretty cool to me.
