What are the most unique places to spend the night in Minnesota?
When you’re taking a Minnesota road trip, you don’t want to spend the night in a boring old motel. Shake things up a bit and stay inside the oldest operating lighthouse in Minnesota! Does that sound too good to be true? Well, you can do just that when you book a room at Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast in Two Harbors. Or if you prefer to rest inside an antique train car, head over to Northern Rail Traincar Inn.

What are the most beautiful small towns in Minnesota?
One of our favorite road trips in Minnesota is through our stunning small towns. Red Wing, nestled along the Mississippi River, is home to some delightful shops and restaurants. Grand Marais has one of the best art communities in the state and it was named one of America’s coolest small towns! We also love meandering through Pipestone. This beautiful place is home to the world’s largest peace pipe and the rock formations are absolutely amazing.
