A hotel room in Mankato, Minnesota provides the perfect Midwestern escape. The city is located at the confluence of the Minnesota and Blue Earth Rivers, and the riverside Land of Memories Park has bike trails, disc golf courses and soccer fields for you to enjoy. The nearby Minneopa State Park offers hiking areas and plenty of ideal fishing spots, plus cross-country skiing in the winter.
History buffs can get some exercise and learn about the area by going on the Historical Walking Tour, but if you’re looking for indoor entertainment, take in a show at the Verizon Wireless Center, featuring both big-name acts and more intimate high culture showings.
If you are staying at our Mankato accommodations in summer, visit Minnesota State University’s training facility and watch the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings practice, or attend the annual Minnesota Flight Academy put on by the Civil Air Patrol.
For some delicious local food, take the Mankato Transit System from your accommodations in Mankato to the downtown area and enjoy some of the best Asian dishes in the area from Yu’s Chinese Cuisine, or try some Old World classics at The Neighbor’s Italian Bistro.
