This 275-Mile Road Trip Leads To Some Of The Most Scenic Parts Of Minnesota, No Matter What Time Of Year It Is

There are many fun trips that you can take all across Minnesota. In the past, we’ve created a burger trail, a thrift store road trip, and even a train-themed road trip. For nature lovers, we’ve covered waterfalls and the spectacular sights of the North Shore. But there’s still so much left to discover. That’s where today’s road trip comes in.

We created a 275-mile road trip that will take you to some of the most scenic parts of Minnesota, no matter the season. It covers an area of Minnesota around the Twin Cities, with a focus on stops that are just south or east of the metro. Read on below to learn about this fun, beautiful road trip.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
