Picture this…The mini-van is packed and your kids are supplied with enough snacks, drinks, activities and electronics to hopefully last them the hours and hours it will take to get to “Faraway Vacation Destination” . You’ve spent weeks getting ready for this family vacation, gone over the check list and finally it’s time to pull out and hit the road! And then, minutes from home, you hear the the dreaded, “Are we there yet?”
We want to share what makes us special!
For starters, we have ALL of the adventure without the long drive. Here you can enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, live music, waterparks, zip lines, boating, fishing sightseeing, arts, shopping, dining, and much more; all within a 45 minute drive from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Plan to stay overnight. We are not just for day trips anymore!
Short Drive. More Fun. Fall Vacations are HOT in the St. Croix Valley!
Mark your calendar! We’ve got fantastic area events that celebrate our history, community, and our natural resources.
