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

In southeastern Minnesota our dramatic landscapes and cultural and recreational activities rival the northshore, but with a longer 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.
