I'm a small town kid and I'm so thankful that I am. Sure big cities get concerts and have professional sports teams and that's fun, but I really love the charm of a small town. There are several great small towns to visit in our area including Lanesboro, Red Wing and Lake City.  Do you have a favorite?

The BEST small town in Minnesota, according to Thrillist, is Stillwater.

Hard to argue with that, right?

My wife and I have visited Stillwater several times. It's a beautiful community with bluffs and a famous lift bridge. If you have young children, you should visit Teddy Bear Park in the summer and the Ice Castles in Winter. You can also snorkel and visit the haunted warden's house!
