Alexandria, Minnesota

Not far from Minneapolis – an easy 2-hour drive west on Interstate 94 – lies a beautiful little place known as the Alexandria Lakes area. About 20,000 years ago, the last of the glaciers retreated to the north, scouring out more than 375 pristine lakes in this part of the state – nestled in the trees and rolling hills – many of them here in what today is Douglas County. Not far from the geographic center of the county is the county seat, Alexandria.

The Alexandria Lakes Area offers lakes, rivers, forests, meadows and rolling hills - environments that contribute to a recreational delight enjoyed by both residents and visitors alike. Here are the things that make Alexandria such a wonderful destination: “unlimited access to the outdoors, small town hospitality and spirit, & big city conveniences and opportunities.”
