The Upper St. Croix River
CLOSE TO HOME, TO NATURE, TO EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO DO
Just north of the Twin Cities are the twin communities of St. Croix Falls, Wis., and Taylors
Falls, Minn. Sharing a common stretch of the St. Croix River, these historic lumber towns
offer a refreshing balance of nature, adventure and culture.
Nature is at every turn. Spot bald eagles and hawks soaring over the River Valley, visit
state parks along both river banks, spend a day in an apple orchard, or bike or hike
Adventure comes in many forms. Experience alpine slides and ski resorts, canoe and
kayak rides on the river, fishing, waterslides, zip lines, snow tubing hills and animal
preserves, to name a few.
Culture is the hidden gem. The towns offer award-winning professional theater, a
50s drive-in, wineries, nationally known artists and potters and five-star restaurants.
Come for a day, stay for the weekend.
