Taylors Falls Minnesota Vacations 

Explore Interstate State Park and Wild Mountain

Taylors Falls Minnesota tourist attractions  bring you to the banks of the lovely St. Croix River and Interstate State Park. These are small town Minnesota vacation spots at their best.

Taylors Falls Minnesota Vacations

Just a short drive from the Twin Cities, Taylors Falls offers breathtaking scenery, the second oldest Minnesota state park and interesting historic architecture. The falls for which the town is named are not the small rapids just below the bridge but the high falls secreted behind the hydroelectric dam just upriver from the town.

Angel Hill District is on the bluff just above Taylors Falls. Most of the homes on the bluff are of 1850s and 1860s Greek Revival architecture: white with green trim, that make one think of a New England village.

As you travel on up the hill, you will also encounter Minnesota's oldest schoolhouse, second oldest operating church and the historic Folsom House constructed in 1854 by lumber baron W.H.C. Folsom.

There are a couple very unique Bed & Breakfast Inns in town and nearby.

Taylors Falls Hotels and B&Bs

The Old Jail Bed & Breakfast - This somewhat funky Old Jail (yes, it is in the renovated 1884 jailhouse) Bed and Breakfast is in Taylors Falls along the St. Croix River.   

The exterior of the original 1884 jail remains; the interior is totally modern. The Cave Suite is a favorite though the Overlook Suite has the best view.

 Here is a list of most Taylors Falls Hotels and B & Bs. If you need more space there is also a great Taylors Falls area vacation rental.  

Minnesota Vacation Rentals can be a wonderful choice for a family vacation, family reunion or group getaway. Many of them are located on lakes in our top vacation destinations.

Interstate State Park is, as the name implies, a state park that spans the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. One of Minnesota's smallest state parks, it is also one of the loveliest and most unique. The cliffs that rise above the river and more than 200 geological formations called "potholes" are found here.
