Your ears don't deceive you: There really is water all around in Cottage Grove. Just north of where the Saint Croix River converges with the Mississippi, Cottage Grove stands. The soundtrack for this suburb is more than just rushing water, however. Listen closely, and you'll hear birds soaring overhead, the unmistakable clink of golf clubs contacting balls, and children screaming in delight as they play in public parks. The smell of a freshly baked pie might drift from a nearby window as you unpack and settle into one of the welcoming, warm Cottage Grove hotels.
When you land at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, about 20 miles east of Cottage Grove, you’ll be hungry for adventure. Or perhaps just hungry? Time your visit to coincide with the Cottage Grove Strawberry Fest and fill your hands with piles of juicy strawberries. Once your lips are stained red and you can't stomach another bite, stride through the green grass with your golf bag and let the warmth of the Midwestern sun warm your body on the River Oaks Golf Course. Then head to city center to appreciate the little things: the smell of burgers cooking on the grill, the chatter of friendly neighbors making conversation, and the sight of the mighty Mississippi River meeting the blue sky off in the distance.
