Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you're a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Minnesota Off the Beaten Path show you the North Star State you never knew existed. Ski, hike, or just relax at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center; visit a three-billion-year-old rock in Yellow Medicine County; or fill up at the world's only Frank Lloyd Wright–designed service station in Carlton County. So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
