Gallery: Goin’ To The Lake: Worthington
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Until the start of the Great Minnesota Get-Together, WCCO is Goin’ To The Lake every week.
In the last trip, Amelia and Mark ventured up north to the town of Biwabik, where they got a taste of the Iron Range.
This week, Liz Collin and Lauren Casey headed to Worthington in southwest Minnesota, about 175 miles from Minneapolis.
The city sits on Lake Okabena, and its downtown area is just blocks from the water. It’s the town where Liz grew up, and it’s also host to the U.S. National Windsurfing Championships.
Not only were there some the best windsurfers in the world to watch, but live music and all the cheese curds you could wave a corn dog at.

The ladies took at little trip back to the 1800s on Friday at the Nobles County Pioneer Village, and they thought it was really cool to see how folks lived back then and all the work they had to do.
All the buildings in the village come from Nobles County, and were really used in the area.
Pioneer Village is open 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It’s $6 for adults and just $1 for kids ages 6 – 12!

The pros at the U.S Windsurfing National Championships make it look so easy. But Liz and Lauren found out the sport is much harder than it looks.
