Katy Trail is the longest rail-trail in the country, at 240-miles long. This trail is a great way to see some beautiful Midwest foliage and fall colors. Included along this trail are 26 trailheads and four fully-restored railroad depots. Visitors can choose between horseback riding, walking, or bicycling along the path! Katy Trail has a lot of historical background, too. It is part of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, part of the American Discovery Trail, and also part of the Millennium Legacy Trail.
Enjoy autumn in this beautiful city. Head to Butchart Gardens, where 22 acres of gardens are accessible every day of the year. Choose between several beautiful sections of the garden: the Sunken Garden, Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Italian Garden, or Mediterranean Garden. Butchart Gardens are beautiful no matter what time of year you visit, but the changing colors of fall make the gardens extra whimsical. Take a taste of the honey wine at Tugwell Creek Honey Farm & Meadery, or visit the Cowichan Valley Wine Country tour for some great samples of wine!
