Dramatic bluffs and open farmland crisscrossed with streams and lakes give way to forests of tall trees that hide wild turkeys, coyote, deer, and other animals. Beautiful, rural, and historical — all three words describe Caledonia, Minnesota.
Located in southeastern Minnesota just west of the Mississippi River, Caledonia is a small city that’s big on charm. Drive through Caledonia and admire the barns decorated with large “quilt” squares — you are, after all, in the heart of quilted country.
Caledonia’s streams offer some of the best trout fishing in the state. If golfing appeals to you more than fishing, Caledonia has a golf course, as well. There are also swimming pools, a bowling alley, and a downtown historic district with shops and restaurants. Visit the oldest jail in Minnesota or tour the Houston County Historical Museum. If you prefer something more adventurous, go canoeing down the Root River. Beaver Creek Valley State Park offers hiking, fishing, camping, and more.
Ready to kick back and relax? Then Caledonia is the place for you.
