  1. Default Help...Western MN to ???

    I just want to take a road trip with family (husband and 2 young boys) starting in MN but no sure which way to go! Any advice? The kids are young so we would need some fun family attractions to stop at and I love the scenic views. Help where should we go??

    Default Heeelp !

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Before anyone can make meaningful suggestions I think it would help if we had a little more info.

    The real important bit is, how long have you got, a week, a month ? How old are the kids ? any budget restraints ?

    Even with this info it is not really for us to tell you where to go, the beauty of the road trip is go where you want, at the pace you want. If you really don't know you can always jump in the car and drive !

    I suggest you look around the RTA pages with a good map to hand and put a couple of dots on it, when you have done a little research and started building a trip I am sure we can help with some of the details.

    Enjoy the planning !

    How long of a trip are you planning?

    Some great destinations within a reasonable drive from western MN are the Black Hills in South Dakota, the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, the Ozarks in Missouri & Arkansas, Northeastern MN (Ely, BWCA, Duluth, North Shore), Thunder Bay, ON (Old Fort William is fantastic and you'll get to drive up along the north shore as a bonus). There's a great wealth of destinations within a couple days drive of western MN.
