Central Minnesota

4.1
Sparkling lakes and verdant hills make a perfect backdrop for a Central Minnesota vacation. Water activities such as fishing, boating, and waterskiing abound, but there are plenty of other things to do whether you're seeking adventure or leisure. Dozens of beautifully designed greens attract golfers, while paved trails and mountain-bike routes draw cycling enthusiasts. Culture-oriented visitors can explore a bustling arts scene in Willmar, or tour the quirky museums of Alexandria. For a warm, quintessential Central Minnesota experience, visit the small, laidback lakeside town of Fergus Falls. Central Minnesota is in Minnesota. Take stress off the schedule by using our United States day trip planning site .
