A Resort Vacation Is a Minnesota Classic

A Minnesota resort isn't just a place to stay on your vacation, it IS your vacation. It's an experience all in itself. A chance to have your own cabin (or townhouse or lodge) by a lake.

It's a Minnesota classic: a comfy lakeside cottage, a chance to go fishing, play in the water, listen to the loons call across the lake, watch the sun set, roast marshmallows, point out galaxies in the starry sky. A resort is a place to get away from it all and reconnect with family and friends.

Some have nature programs and special activities for kids. Most rent boats or pontoons, or have a boat access if you bring your own. Some have campgrounds, so you can enjoy the resort from your own RV.

Depending on your interests, you can find resorts near state parks, bike trails, casinos, summer theater, amusement parks and towns with fun shops and restaurants.

You can choose a small, family run resort or a large complex with on-site dining, golf, spa or other amenities. But no matter which you choose, the resort vacation itself is timeless. In fact, visitors have been coming to Minnesota for lakeside getaways for 150 years. It's a perfect tradition to pass on to your kids or grandkids.

Resorts are a great destination for a week's vacation or a long weekend getaway. The earlier you plan your trip, the more choice you will have in availability.
