Welcome to Minnesota's Prairielands
Come explore Southwest Minnesota. With numerous parks, abundant wildlife, and picturesque communities, Southwest Minnesota is your invitation to step back, relax, and unwind.
Take the time to traverse the wide-open prairie landscapes throughout the region. Visit one of the world's last remaining herds of purebred bison grazing in a 1,500-acre tallgrass prairie, or go on an adventure at one of our stunning parks. Whether it's climbing 100-foot quartzite cliffs, windsurfing, visiting a waterfall, kayaking or fishing on one of our many lakes and quiet streams, or birding, there is so much to experience in our region's parks. History buff? Take a spin on a train turntable or stroll through pioneer-era museums and historic sites.
Visit one of our many picturesque communities filled with historic, stone buildings, explore local shops and dining, unwind at one of our local breweries or wineries, or enjoy the summer nights at one of the few drive-in movies in the country. Sit on the banks of Plum Creek, where the stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder come to life, take in a play at a local theater, or take a stroll through Jeffers Petroglyphs and let your imagination soar.
Our region is rich in history, diverse in nature, and full of attractions. Step back, relax, and unwind in Southwest Minnesota.
