Scenic Drives in Northern MN

Anytime is a good time to cruise northeastern Minnesota, either by car or motorcycle, but the autumn colors can’t be beat. The best time to enjoy fall on the Iron Range is mid-September to early October, but timing may vary, so check with Minnesota’s Fall Color Finder.

To help you plan your route, we’ve created a fall color tours guide, with information about which roads to take and where to stop along the way.

For motorcyclists, we offer the Ride the Arrowhead guide, with many route options. As always, call us for detailed information about where to stay, eat and learn. A must-drive: Superior National Forest Scenic Byway from the Iron Range to the North Shore of Lake Superior, and back again!

Autumn & Beyond
