September is Drive the Great River Road month, and this year’s theme is a celebration of Fall Harvest on Minnesota’s stretch of this scenic roadway along the Mississippi River!
Minnesota’s Great River Road is an All-American Road spanning 565 miles, 43 communities, 20 counties, three tribes and six unique destination areas, providing public access to and promoting exploration of America’s Great Mississippi River.
As September approaches, we’ll be highlighting farms, markets, farm-to-table restaurants, parks, scenic points, commercial districts, lodging options and more all along Minnesota’s Great River Road. Stay tuned to our Fall Harvest on the Great River Road page for itinerary ideas and more.
