Make Way For October Travel, An Autumn Getaway Awaits

We’re in the midst of autumn and there are plenty of ways to enjoy the season’s best while staying with Odyssey Resorts. Below are some of our favorite activities throughout the month of October.

  1. Cider Season Is in Full Swing

Come October, the time is right to sip some North Shore cider. This beverage pairs well with crisp, autumn air and makes a fine refreshment after a scenic, outdoor hike. Enjoy cider at one of Odyssey’s three North Shore restaurants. Or, travel offsite to a nearby establishment known for this fantastic drink.

  1. Take A Fall Colors Cruise

Make the most of autumn leaves with a walk, hike or leisurely drive. Bright, saturated hues decorate the North Shore with bounties of rich red and golden tones. Viewing the leaves in October is one of the best parts about the North Shore in the fall and Odyssey Resorts are conveniently located to many popular tours.

This fall color guide from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is a helpful tool to help maximize the fall colors on your visit.

  1. Shop for Fall Fashion

Revamp your wardrobe with handcrafted apparel and locally-inspired attire. Creative shops can be found throughout the North Shore, each maintaining a one of a kind collection.

Three of our suggestions:

Flagship (Duluth)

Moosecellaneous (Two Harbors)

Lake Superior Trading Post (Grand Marais)

  1. Stock up for Halloween

Halloween is around the corner and whether you want to share or savor for yourself, Odyssey Resorts is near a vast array of candy vendors perfect for stocking up for the season. There are local shops to explore. Great! Lakes Candy Kitchen is one of our favorites. For over 100 years, these candy makers have been serving handmade delights.
