Visit Hinckley Minnesota, one of our favorite stops on a trip to Duluth. Visit the Hinckley Fire Museum and Grand Casino Hinckley.
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.
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.
Take some time to visit Hinckley Minnesota to learn a bit about the area history.
