Two Sunflower Patches Near Rochester That Are Perfect For Family Photos
You've seen all of the people talking about the sunflower patches right? If you haven't, it's one of the trendiest spots right now to grab a selfie or have a photoshoot done of your kids. Grab your camera and hurry, because these two Instagram ready locations will soon be fading away.
#1 - Douglas Trail
- You may have gone on a bike ride on the Douglas Trail earlier this year but now is a great time to hop back on. Just North of Douglas, on the trail, is a patch of sunflowers.
#2 - Nelson, Wisconsin
- You are going to need to drive about an hour for this photo opp, but it is well worth it. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get an exact location on this one because everyone was telling me "By Nelson, Wisconsin" but, turns out, there is an actual address for "Sunflower Fields" in Nelson, Wisconsin. Just plug in this address (Sunflower Fields, Co Rd D, Nelson, WI 54756), set your cruise, and get ready for a gorgeous view of yellow.
If you are wanting to drive a bit further, there are a bunch of sunflower fields Northeast of the Twin Cities. I got a tip about a Facebook page called Fish Sunflowers. You can see all of the great pictures they've been taking and some of the locations in that area here.
