Popular Summertime Road Trips In & Around Minnesota


June is here, and that means that we’re entering Summer. The weather is going to start heating up, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to start picking up your warm weather hobbies again. Minnesota has a lot to offer, from hiking, biking, camping, fishing, hunting, rafting, and so much more. If the Summer puts you in the mood for a road trip, we’ve got some ideas for you.


Bunker Hills Regional Park. Located in Coon Rapids, you’ve got the option to pitch a tent or stay in cabins. With access to the Bunker Beach Water Park and Bunker Park Stable, and much more while you’re there, you won’t have trouble staying busy.

Clearwater Historic Lodge. Over 100 years old now, with your choice of a cabin or a room in the lodge. This is a great jumping off point for many outdoor activities, for novices and veterans alike. Options include hiking, fishing, kayaking, and much more.

The Great River Rumble. If you’re up for a long canoe or kayak trip (July 29-Aug. 5), this is an experience you won’t want to miss. The Great River Rumble chooses a different location every year, so if you’re on the fence, remember it might be a while before it returns to Minnesota!

Summerfest Music Festival. One of the largest music festivals in the world is hosted in Milwaukee, WI. Some acts that will be there this year include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Future, Ludacris, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Pink, and many more. There’s something for just about everyone

ATV around Superior National Forest. If you’re looking for somewhere new to experience with your ATV and haven’t been here yet, do it. You won’t regret it. Keep the area in mind around Winter, too, because there’s plenty of snowmobile options in the area, too.

Whether you follow one of our suggestions or make your own adventure, we hope you enjoy your Summer months. If you need your AC fixed for those long trips, don’t forget to stop in and let us get everything working. Stay safe, and have a blast. Don’t forget to tell us all about it the next time you stop by.
