Aaaaahhhh, Autumn…
Perhaps autumn is the most beautiful time of year to visit our picturesque city. Nestled in the southeast corner of Minnesota, we are surrounded by nature’s bounty, and we welcome you to enjoy the tranquility and pastoral views of this area, where our Norwegian ancestors settled so long ago. With an occasional sprinkle of the Norwegian language still overheard on the street, and celebration steeped in tradition, we’re sure you’ll find our fair city a delight to the senses any time of year!
