MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Do you happen to have a long weekend? Lucky you, you now can have a three-day trip in central Minnesota to enjoy whatever beauty lies between Alexandria and Fergus Falls. You can start from Alexandria and finish your short trip to Fergus Falls, or vice versa.

Day one, Alexandria is a great place to visit if you're looking for a relaxing lake vacation or just want to see old wooden boats. There are also various attractions in this area that offer both history and fun. Take a photo with Big Ole, which is a massive statue of a Viking. Nearby is Lake Carlos State Park, which has a swimming beach and a theater.

Day two, although Alexandria and Fergus Falls are both along I-94, the rural roads between these two cities make for a scenic drive. There are much fun finds along the way. In addition, at Battle Lake, visit the Art of the Lakes Gallery. There are also plenty of other places to visit in the area. You can hike or visit the wildlife observatory at Glendalough State Park. Also, you can have a picnic at Phelps' 1889 flour mill before making your way to Fergus Falls.

Day three, the city of Fergus Falls is located on the Otter Tail River, and its various lakes make it a great place to enjoy nature. There are also various attractions that highlight the area's history. You can visit Otter Tail County Historical Museum and A Center for the Arts while you are here.

Moreover, Prairie Wetlands Learning Center trails follow a path through the tallgrass prairie. The wetlands extend past the grass. You will get to enjoy beautiful bird songs and visuals on the trails.
