This river that separates Minnesota from Wisconsin is stunning. I would recommend renting a boat and taking a tour. Be sure to stop in the small river town of Stillwater for fabulous boutique shopping, great history, and delicious restaurants.

I enjoyed this river travelling on one of the riverboat ferries. You can get group rates that provide dinner and drinks. A great idea for an office outing or wedding party.

We enjoy kayaking and canoeing the St. Croix River. It's fun to stop at the restaurant on the west bank about 4 hours paddle south from the State Park!
