Northwest Minnesota offers opportunities to find quiet wilderness, fun sporting events, exciting entertainment and the bright lights of regional trade centers within a reasonable travel distance. You can plan a weekend of relaxed camping in a small town setting and yet have access to some of the Midwest’s best shopping areas. Wildlife preserves with moose, deer and elk are only a few miles from the finest golf courses around. The natural terrain includes lakes, rivers, forest, prairie and everything in between. You can find crowds of people in the more popular spots but there are also places where peaceful solitude is the only description.
