Nestled along the banks of Lake Pepin and the Mississippi River, is Minnesota’s Southshore — Lake City.

In southeastern Minnesota our dramatic landscapes, laid-back cultural and recreational activities rival most travel destinations, with a long summer season, warmer water, slower pace and none of the crowds. Enjoy boating, golfing, snowmobiling, browsing our quaint shops and fine galleries… or just chilling in a hammock. Join us for four seasons of family fun, romantic getaways or adventures with friends.
