It's fun to think back to how life may have been when Sinclair Lewis lived in this town. Not much was happening on the rainy, windy day we visited.

Sauk Centre has almost everything you could ever want, and the Main Street is fun to walk. A highlight is the movie theater with its magnificent marquee

A typical small town Main Street, but you could almost imagine Sinclair Lewis walking around here. Interesting collection of businesses and just the place to spend a week end. The leaves were turning too and that just added to the charm!
