Alexandria – A Destination for Play

Just two hours northwest of the Twin Cities on I-94, the beautiful lakes of the Alexandria area remain a popular attraction for families looking for summer fun. The area offers great fishing, great golfing and fun for the entire family. You can choose the size of lake you want depending on your vacation style. You can spend the entire day on the water. Golfers enjoy championship courses. Walkers and bikers will enjoy the Central Lakes Trail that runs 55 miles from Fergus Falls to Osakis along an old railroad bed, with plenty of restaurants and shops to stop at along the way. Families will find plenty to do at community celebrations and events. There’s a reason Alexandria’s motto is “Easy to Get to and Hard to Leave.” It’s because it’s true.
