Visit an area apple orchard!
Something fun to do in Minnesota is visit one of our wonderful apple orchards. One of the special gifts of living in Minnesota is our apple orchards. We have a wonderful variety of apples grown here. They include Honeycrisp (created at the University of Minnesota), Zesta, Chestnut Crab, Sweet Sixteen, McIntosh, Cortland, Haralson, Honeygold and SweeTango.
Many of the orchards also feature wagon rides. Also, you can stock up on gourds and pumpkins at the retail barn.
In addition, the Minnetonka Orchards features weekend music on the hill and a petting zoo. And you can also grab a bite to eat at the orchard’s brat house or donut hut.
