Getaway Guide: One-Tank Trip to Stillwater, MN

Scenic Stillwater sits only a short drive west of the Twin Cities, and its proximity to the St. Croix River means this bustling town is equally enjoyable on warm summer nights as it is wrapped up in a picturesque snowfall. Considered the birthplace of Minnesota, as the charter for statehood was signed here in 1858, the town is full of history. Don’t miss out on a day trip to one of the most darling cities Minnesota has to offer.
