People come to visit us in Northeastern Minnesota for our wilderness and our clean water. You can't find that just anywhere. You also can't find an area with so few people in it. That's a blessing for visitors (unless you like the Disney-crowd experience) and a curse for local businesses who need more people to stay open. Nonetheless, we hope many visitors come to our region for the wilderness experience, the fishing, the relaxing, and lack of crowds. Northeast Minnesota is and always has been a fabulous place to visit!
Take a look at a map of the clean water in Minnesota. We are in the Arrowhead. Mining all over the place and good clean water says something about the miners and mining companies doesn't it? Then note the water around the big Twin Cities region. Meh...not so much. Come stay with us and have a great time this summer!
