What’s not to love about a river tubing (or kayaking/canoeing) trip down the stunning Root River, especially when you throw in a visit to the charming B&B capital of Minnesota? With incredible access to the Root River Trail and the river itself, not to mention the thriving arts scene, charming shops, and delicious restaurants that call this town home, there’s plenty to love about visiting Lanesboro MN this summer. River tubing on a hot summer’s day down the Root River is just the beginning!
Beyond just being a great place to cool off, the Root River and surrounding limestone bluffs and valleys are unbelievably scenic. The glaciers that last moved through this area flattening most of the midwest just so happened to leave this area untouched, giving it its uncharacteristically hilly terrain. What remains is bluff country, an absolutely breathtaking place to vacation and enjoy a bit of outdoor adventure along the Root River.
