Things to do during "cabin time" in Grand Rapids
Grand Rapids, MN resorts and cabin rentals are in the heart of Itasca County and the Chippewa National Forest. An area that boasts over 1,000 lakes in the Minnesota north woods. Your Cabin Time includes water sports such as fishing, skiing, boating, ice fishing and ice skating prevalent. Sandy beaches are everywhere for the sandcastle building fans or even those that just want to soak up the rays. Hike or bike the Chippewa National Forest and even ride the Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway that whispers in and out of the Grand Rapids area. This roadway highlights wonderful warm colors in the fall.
For those that are looking for a family friendly cabin getaway in the Grand Rapids area, there are plenty of choices and activities aside from the lakes. There is the historic logging camp, children’s museum and many local parks and family friendly restaurants. Enjoy a stroll down in the historic downtown of Grand Rapids or enjoy a showboat performance. Take in a jazz concert or attend the county fair, car shows, sled dog races, or many more events such as the Itasca Father Daughter Ball in early spring. Grand Rapids is the birthplace of Judy Garland so while you’re here, visit the Judy Garland museum. You can even follow the yellow brick road to your Grand Rapids cabin or lakeside cottage in June during the Judy Garland festival.
A relaxing vacation is only a 3 hour drive from Minneapolis and Fargo; this is a great destination to find a quiet cabin to call your basecamp whether you come to hunt, fish, hike, or bike.
