Minnesota Hotel Reservations
Across the Land of 10,000 Lakes, mild summer weather continues, and the people of communities from Grand Marais to Bemidji to Albert Lea make the most of the mild temperatures and sunshine by hosting a wealth of special events, festivals, sporting events, and outdoor activities.
For Interstate 35 travelers, a stop in Duluth is a must. Not only does the city serve as the perfect launch pad to countless waterborne activities on Lake Superior this season, focal points along its scenic Skyline Drive shine their brightest in the summer. Check out Enger Park, which features walking paths amid Japanese peace gardens, as well as an 80-foot tower dedicated in 1939 by Crown Prince Olav and Crown Princess Martha of Norway.
Sports fans visiting southern Minnesota don’t have to wait until September to feel the excitement of NFL football. On select dates throughout July and August, Minnesota Vikings come to Minnesota State University in Mankato to conduct this year’s training camp. Check the schedule during your stay and join the Viking Village for autographs, kids' activities, and more.
Detroit Lakes yields summer visitors easy access to an array of outdoor adventures. The mile-long Detroit Lake Public Beach is primed for a day of fun in the sun, with swimming areas, picnic areas, white sand, and multiple marinas offering equipment rentals.
Every Saturday and Sunday, all summer long, the 2015 Shady Hollow Flea Market, Artisan Fair & Farmers’ Market fills Shady Hollow, off of Highway 59 South in Detroit Lakes. Find a true sense of the North Star state by browsing baked goods, fresh produce, and the creations of local craftspeople while the kids stay busy with scavenger hunts and other fun activities. Get there early to enjoy the best selection – vendors open up at 7 a.m. and things wind down around 2 p.m.
