Alexandria MN - Interesting Places To Visit Near Alexandria

Interesting Places Near Woodland ResortThe Identity of the Alexandria Area is found in its Lakes, however, the real character can be found in the many interesting places and unique adventures to be found in the Area!  Spend an afternoon at the Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum or take a scenic drive and short hike to the top of the Inspiration Peek. A favorite spot for the Nobel Prizewinning Novelist Sinclair Lewis, who wrote "there's to be seen a glorious 20-mile circle of some 50 lakes scattered among fields and pastures, like sequins fallen on an old paisley shawl."  If you are in need of even more "Inspiration" maybe a stop at Carlos Creek Winery would be in order. Tours, Tastings and much more, are available at this working vineyard and winery, suitable for the whole family.
