Did you know that 95% of Minnesota’s population lives less than 10 minutes from a body of water? With nearly 12,000 lakes scattered throughout our scenic state, there is no shortage of quiet beaches, overlooks, piers, urban towers, and waterfront trails from which to enjoy a stunning sunrise or sunset. But one beloved lake in Minnesota is uniquely poised to show off Mother Nature at her finest. For one of the best places to watch a sunset in Minnesota, visit Mille Lacs Lake and enjoy the show!
Absolutely stunning! Be sure to add on a drive on the Lake Mille Lacs Scenic Byway as well! If you have any tips for catching an incredible sunset at Mille Lacs or around the state, let us know. Or, nominate your favorite places here.
