Get acquainted with the gorgeous lakefronts that Minnesota has to offer, and head up to Brainerd for some lakeside fun. Breathe in the fresh air scented by the pine trees and take a walk along the lakefront or rent one of the lakeside houses for a spectacular view. You could always make it a resort getaway weekend and pamper yourself!

There are plenty of outdoor sports activities for nature enthusiasts – whether you go for a picnic at the state park, or if you are looking to spend more time there, bring your hiking shoes and hit the trails.
