Visit Hinckley Minnesota

For us, Hinckley is the logical stop on a trip to Duluth or the North Shore of Lake Superior.

From where we live in St. Paul, it's just far enough up the road for us to need to make a "pit stop" for food and gas.

Grand Casino Hinckley is the obvious attraction for many people who make the trip. Even if you are not a "player," the casino buffet is reason enough to make a stop here.

Many top musical acts and entertainment can also be experienced in the casino showroom.

There are two other restaurants here that draw visitors to Minnesota: Tobies and Cassidy's. Both have their fans. Tobies also has a wonderful bakery; we often find many items we just have to have.

Ely Minnesota Vacations lodging is open in winter and most hotel and resort owners will help you plan your trip.

If the idea of finding lodging in a small town where you can explore the area appeals to you, we suggest you visit Hinckley Minnesota and make it your "base camp" for an unusual Minnesota vacation.

Hinckley Minnesota Hotels include the casino hotel, several other good hotels, a bed & breakfast inn and a vacation rental.

Take some time to visit Hinckley Minnesota to learn a bit about the area history. 

The Hinckley Fire Museum memorializes one of the most tragic events in Minnesota's history. On September 1, 1894, raging wildfires created a firestorm that destroyed Hinckley and five other towns resulting in the deaths of more than 400 people.

The Willard Munger State Trail begins in downtown Hinckley and runs 63 miles to Duluth.

North West Company Fur Post: Located just west of Pine City, this little known attraction is worth a stop on your trip up Highway 35E. You will experience one of Minnesota's best living history re-enactments and learn about the Ojibwe tribe's connection to the fur trade. The Grand Celebration Powwow is celebrated in June. There is also a very nice Native American gift shop on the grounds.
