My mother grew up there, and most of her family still lives in the bluff country of SE MN. It's a very picturesque little town, with friendly people, good food, and a charming atmosphere. While my views are undoubtedly colored at least somewhat by nostalgia, it's still one of my favorite places to visit.
I have traveled all over Minnesota and camped at over 15 state parks and campgrounds. While on the one hand, you can't beat sitting on the end of a dock on a quiet lake somewhere....but the small country roads, the bluffs and valleys surrounding Spring Grove and Bluff Country is BY FAR the most beautiful part of Minnesota. We "escaped" the Twin Cities and moved to rural Spring Grove 8 years ago and would not trade it for the world!!
To visit The Granary WoodShops just outside of Spring Grove!! www.granarywoodshops.com :)
Everything Beth says about Spring Grove is true. We moved here 44 years ago and wouldn't consider living any other place. We eagerly await the Grand Opening of the Spring Grove Cinema in three weeks - a state of the art facility with surround sound, 3D and Digital projection. We can walk there safely and also to other locations such as the Family Aquatic Center. A 12 mile horse trail through the woods and valleys is at the edge of town on State Highway 44 The wildflowers are blooming in the woods--it's magic here in Bluff Country--no fooling.
