Northwest Minnesota

4.2
Outdoor pursuits, from hiking and biking in state parks to fishing and boating on Minnesota's biggest lakes, draw the largest number of tourists to Northwest Minnesota. Intrepid and outdoorsy types can check out the forested ATV trails as well, or go snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter. Between the forests and the lakes, there are family-friendly resorts, campgrounds, and pretty towns like Bemidji and Moorhead with good restaurants, specialty shops, art galleries, and heritage centers. For something really out of the ordinary, head to Lake Itasca and see the humble headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River. Holidays in Northwest Minnesota allow you to get away from it all as well as to satisfy your inner adventurer. In the build up to your vacation in Northwest Minnesota, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United States online holiday planner.
