Apple Blossom Drive
A Short, but Sweet Drive
Apple Blossom Drive looks down upon the beautiful Mississippi River Valley while winding its way through bountiful apple orchards that blanket hillsides. Located in the northeast section of Historic Bluff Country, this Minnesota State Scenic Byway is 17 miles long and follows Highway 29 from La Crescent, Dakota, and Nodine. In the Spring, the apple blossoms fill the air with flowery fragrance and picturesque views. Autumn offers unique opportunities for viewing the scenic fall colors, as well as roadside apple stands, apple picking, cider, Indian corn, and pumpkins.
