Just minutes away from the hubbub of the twin cities of Brainerd and Baxter is the Northland Arboretum. It’s almost a shock to find yourself so close to the fully built-out stretch of Highway 371 that goes through Baxter and just down the street from Fleet Farm, and yet you’re in a peaceful, calm nature preserve.
Don’t leave that furry fella at home when you head out for your next adventure. From arboretum exploration to dinning out at a little yappy hour, Minnesota promises no shortage of opportunities for your pup to get out and play with you. The best places to take a doggy day trip offer playtime galore for both you and your pup.
Just a two-hour drive up north and you’ll find a beautiful area, perfect for a weekend getaway. The Brainerd Lakes Area is a refreshing vacation spot from the hustle and bustle of the Twin Cities.
