Things To Do

Get Lost. Take a Hike. Jump in a Lake. Tee Off. It’s all here for you to do.

We’re a nature-lovers paradise. Tee off on one of our nationally recognized golf courses. Feel the rumble of high-powered race cars. Cruise one of our abundant lakes at sunset. Traverse miles of rugged mountain bike switchbacks. Bike the longest paved trail in Minnesota. Reel in a big catch. Listen to the loons’ eerie wail. You can do as much—or as little—as you want while here.
