This Secluded Quarry In Minnesota Might Just Be Your New Favorite Swimming Spot
Minnesota summers can be hot and sticky, making the only desirable activity swimming in your local lake or beach. If you’re looking for a different swimming hole, one that’s not right out in the open, you’re in luck! Just over an hour northwest of the Twin Cities, you’ll find the town of Waite Park, which is home to one of the most amazing secluded swimming holes. Quarry Park and Nature Preserve will quickly become your favorite swimming spot in the state! There’s plenty to do in this park, so be sure to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy your stay.
