Most Popular Area Attractions

Pipestone National Monument

Pipestone National Park

Pipestone National Park

Visitors of Mankato and Albert Lea frequently make the trek to Pipestone, Minnesota, where the Pipestone National Monument preserves sacred quarries used to make ceremonial pipes.

The park features several interactive programs and locations so guests can familiarize themselves with this ancient American Indian practice.

Visitors can view the quarries via the Circle Trail – weaving through the scenery – or pack a lunch and relax at the Three Maidens picnic area.

Further information and pipestone exhibits can be found at the visitor center and accompanying museum.

Quarry Hill Nature Center

Spanning nearly 320 acres of beautiful Minnesota scenery, the Quarry Hill Nature Center and Park combine for seemingly endless outdoor recreation and discovery opportunities. The nature center is found in the southeaster city of Rochester – not far from Red Wing and Albert Lea.

A stop at the nature center entails a visit to Quarry Hill Nature Center's Exploration Hall – featuring hands-on displays, live animals on exhibit, and a massive aquarium. Quarry Hill Park, however, showcases the scenery surrounding with an excess of hiking trails, two ponds, fossil hunting, and more.

Rochester Art Center

Originally housed in a small room at the Rochester public Library, the Rochester Art Center has grown into a 36,000 square foot facility housing some of Minnesota's best contemporary art. In fact, visitors frequently travel from nearby towns of Red Wing, Albert Lea, and even the Twin Cities for a tour of the art center.

The art center itself is found on the first floor of the impressive three-story building – connecting the Mayo Clinic Grand Lobby and Wells Fargo Atrium with one another. Apart from the constant rotation of excellent exhibits, the RAC hosts special events, the Total Arts Day Camp, RAC classes and workshops, and so much more.
