Travel & Leisure Magazine’s “AMERICA’S BEST TOWNS FOR FALL COLORS” awarded third place to Stillwater, MN as one of the top American towns named. Located on the colorful banks and bluffs of the St. Croix River, Stillwater was selected with other top-scoring towns that represent the full color spectrum, from the blazing scarlet, orange, and deep purples of New England’s hardwoods to the golden carpet of aspens covering the Rocky Mountains.

In addition to spectacular fall foliage, historic Stillwater, the “Birthplace of Minnesota”, is known for charming and romantic B&B’s and inns, paddlewheel river cruises, local wineries and micro-breweries and a variety of fall events and festivals.
