Discover Stillwater

If you are looking for something to do for a day or maybe a weekend, why not discover Stillwater.  Stillwater is an historic old town right on the St. Croix River, just a short drive from the Twin Cities.  There is plenty to do any time of the year but the summer is especially nice and it is family friendly as well.  Stillwater is often referred to as the birthplace of Minnesota because in 1848 a territorial convention began the process of establishing Minnesota as a state and it was held in Stillwater at the corner of Myrtle and Main Streets.

Among the things to do in this historical old town are visiting used bookstores, antique shops, historical sites and the scenic St. Croix River valley.  There are also many different tours you can take including city tours, historical home tours, winery and brewery tours.  Stillwater offers a wide variety of restaurants from casual to find dining and many outdoor eating areas as well.  Lodging varies from Bed & Breakfasts, to historic Inns to hotels and motels.  One of the finer historic hotels is the Lowell Inn which was established in 1927.  Each room is individually designed and they offer several dining rooms each with their own theme as well.

Another fun idea is to take in a Murder Mystery Dinner.  You will enjoy a 3 course dinner and your table will also solve a murder.  They also book private parties and events.

July 14th is the Taste of Stillwater held on the grounds of grounds of Saint Croix Vineyards and Aamodt’s Apple Farm from 11-6.  Around 3000 people are expected.
