The Stillwater area has the distinct honor of being the Birthplace of Minnesota. As such, our region, and downtown Stillwater in particular, is rich in history dating back to the logging and steamship days of the mid-1800s. When you visit our historic area, you will be stepping back in time where horse-drawn carriages and trolley cars still roam the streets ferrying visitors about the town. From cozy bed and breakfasts to historic hotels dripping with old-world charm, your stay will be memorable from start to finish.
For the latest in tourism and lodging information, we encourage you to visit the Convention and Visitors Bureau. If you are looking for fun activities, festivals and public events, visit our Events page for all the happenings in and about the River Valley area.
If you’re looking for something special, you can find it at any of the locally-owned shops. Stroll along the sidewalks, peer into the windows framed by the historic storefronts, then step inside to see everything from fine jewelry and Christmas ornaments of every kind to rugged outdoor clothing. There’s no shortage of gift ideas for you or the ones you love.
