Southern Minnesota

4.4
Sprawling between lush valleys and wooded bluffs, Southern Minnesota boasts a vibrant fusion of ethnic traditions, religions, and cultural heritages. Traversed by mighty rivers and quiet trout streams, the region echoes with tales of early pioneers and native Dakota Indians, recalled at many historic sites. Fishing lakes, rivers, caves, and bike trails provide plenty of outdoor adventures, while welcoming river towns and pastoral villages cradle historic architecture, antique shops, and ethnic festivals. For quirky museums, visit atmospheric town of Red Wing. To get a glimpse of Amish life, go to Harmony, and to spot eagles, head to Wabasha. Either way, a diverse Southern Minnesota itinerary offers plenty choices for an exciting holiday. Southern Minnesota is in Minnesota.
