This is the perfect time to take in the magnificence and beauty of Mother Nature’s changing colors. Bright shades of green make way for red, yellow, and gold, creating a spectacular backdrop from which to enjoy fall activities. Pick up some sweet and juicy apples from one of two local orchards, or grab some cider or delicious homemade pies.
Did you know Fairmont, MN has five lakes? As the leaves change the parks and lakes are still here to enjoy. Go for a scenic drive around the lakes and into the surrounding countryside and parks. Head out on to the water to enjoy the pre-winter rays of sunshine. Fall is also a popular season for hunters, who travel to Martin County to take advantage of the water fowl, white-tail deer and pheasants that gather in the region. You can also get some target practice in at the Fairmont Trap Club’s shooting range.
