Lanesboro, Minnesota

Seeing as this weekend will probably be the last stretch of beautiful weather for the year, I decided I'd make the trek down to Lanesboro.

Lanesboro is an isolated river community tucked into the Root River valley in the southeastern corner of Minnesota. In the last 20 years, the town has seen a resurgence in popularity in large part because of its location on the Blufflands State Trail, a 60-mile bicycle trail that winds through the Root River valley. Canoeists and kayakers also have access to the town and can paddle directly up to several restaurants and businesses in the community.

Along with other Southeast Minnesota towns, Lanesboro is home to an Amish community that lives close by, and many sell their products during the tourist season.

Lanesboro, Minnesota
Population: 754

This is my favorite part of Minnesota besides the Twin Cities. The Driftless Area reminds me of the part of upstate New York I grew up in, except you don't have to live in a horrible place to experience it.

Yeah, it's definitely a distinctive area in the state, and very beautiful with the autumn colors this time of year. The next chance I get, I'm going to have to head back down there with some friends and check out the Root River Trail on my bike.

It's funny you say that – xzmattzx said almost the exact same thing on on my thread in the Midwest subforum. I guess the area does kind of look like Appalachian foothills.

Beautiful and bucolic! It's like out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

I'd love to visit someday.

Love this part of the US. Minnesota is idyllic.

Uh, what exactly are you implying? I guess I don't see how Lanesboro can in any way be thought of as creepy. It's a very charming and beautifully-maintained town. What a bizarre perception.
