With the school year winding down and Memorial Day weekend behind us, we thought it’d be a good time to share some our favorite day trip ideas from the Twin Cities Metro area. Summer is a great time to pack a picnic, jump in the car and explore some of the beautiful places around our state and region.
- Red Wing, MN – Situated on the banks of the Mississippi, the city has breathtaking views and several large parks to visit and enjoy.
- Excelsior, MN – Has a small town feel and great public beach access to Lake Minnetonka.
- Stillwater, MN – Stroll down main street and stop into the quaint shops or grab a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants in the picturesque location on the St. Criox River.
- New Ulm, MN – With the German heritage and Schell’s Brewery, this is a great place to stroll through on a lazy summer afternoon.
We hope you get a chance to get away and enjoy some of the areas that we’ve highlighted. We look forward to seeing pictures of your adventures on social media!
