Dig out your camera, get into your walking shoes, and appreciate a day in the outdoors at Lake Itasca, a fantastic attraction to feature on your tour plans.
To get there, you'll need to travel about 190 miles (306 kilometers) from the state capital, St. Paul, until you get to Walker.
Be prepared to commute a little farther than usual to reach your hotel after you're finished exploring. Given its remote location, there's nowhere to stay in the immediate surrounds. Situated 70 miles (113 kilometers) away, the Cragun's Resort & Hotel is popular with travelers. The Best Western Premier The Lodge on Lake Detroit, 40 miles (64 kilometers) away, and the Chase On The Lake Resort Hotel, a commute of 30 miles (48 kilometers), are two more places to think about.
