You're excited for the onset of autumn, but life's too short to sit on your hands and wait for that first leaf to blow to the ground. Blast into fall on your own terms with this whirlwind Adventure along Minnesota's North Shore: a fall foliage day trip exploring Duluth, Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, and beyond—complete with boat, train, and hiking tours; three meals; and round-trip transportation.
We'll start by heading to our check-in point in Roseville, where our league of LivingSocial leaf-lovers will be waiting to greet us and pass off some light breakfast fare to help fuel the fall fun ahead. From there, we'll hop on a luxury coach bus headed north for our first stop: Duluth's North Shore Scenic Railroad. Here we'll board our privately chartered train car for a 90-minute ride along the beautiful north shore—through pristine fall colored forests, over rushing rivers, and along the majestic coast of Lake Superior—to our next destination: the historic train station in Two Harbors. From there, we'll make our way to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, where we'll enjoy a delicious lunch featuring a duo of soups with a cookie and hot apple cider, courtesy of the Vanilla Bean Café.
After lunch, we will get to enjoy the surroundings of this breathtaking state park. First we will take on a fall foliage hike in Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, where we'll get the chance to take pictures and enjoy the crisp autumn air. After that, we'll explore the iconic lighthouse that sits atop the rocky cliffs of the park, with a tour of the property and the buildings that have sat there for the last 100 years. Next, we'll be whisked back to Duluth's Canal Park for a choose-your-own-adventure affair: take a stroll along the lake shore, head out to the pier for an up-close-and-personal view of the lighthouse, or grab a coffee and wander through the quaint shops. We will regroup for an hour-long tour of Lake Superior aboard the Vista Fleet Queen, complete with on-board happy hour which will include your choice of one glass of wine or beer or a rail drink. When the currents bring us back ashore, we'll make our way to Grandma's Saloon & Grill for a three-course dinner (including salad, pasta dinner, and dessert) before making the trip back to the city. Don't stand idly by while fall takes its sweet time—this is one Adventure that's sure to take the season by storm.
