EXPLORE TAYLORS FALLS, MN & ST. CROIX FALLS, WI
The landscape alone makes the trip to Osceola, WI worth it. A scenic drive that crests small hills and winds along the St. Croix River, with family farms swelling above a rolling sea of golden corn fields eventually giving way to mammoth roadside rock cliffs and forestland painted in an explosion of color.
Since the steamboat and railroad eras, travelers have sought out Osceola in the fall to admire the deep maroon of sumac and Virginia creeper, the yellows and golds of hackberry, aspen and green ash, and the rich oranges and reds of sugar maples and pin oaks mingling with the ever-green evergreens. But Osceola is so much more than a pretty view. Discover unforgettable things to do and places to eat and stay while you pursue the hues. Don’t forget your camera.
