Welcome to Western Minnesota

Yes Minnesota is “The Land of 10,000 Lakes,” and Western Minnesota is a great indicator of why the state has that nickname! Visit Alexandria in “Lake Country” and open the door to endless outdoor activities and small town charm! Visit the Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum and learn just how the lakes of the state have and will always be an integral part to the region and state! Spend time out on the beach of one of the area’s lakes or cruise around them on a boat! Head north to the city of Detroit Lakes and try your luck at angling fish at one of the city’s 412 lakes, shop at quaint boutiques downtown, or enjoy one of the many cultural events that happen year-round! Just a short drive west from the Twin Cities, make Western Minnesota your perfect getaway!
