A vacation to Mankato is a family delight for all age groups with sports and entertainment, fine dining experience and shopping. Start with the LufsaHoma in Mankato, the original fictional “Castle Dracula” from Bram Stoker’s novel. A visit in winter is an outdoor enthusiast’s haven – cross country skiing, down-hill skiing, ice skating, and ice hockey are all there to enjoy. The local, county and state trails ends in over 50 miles of paved trails and is perfect for biking and running. Alternatively, you can try your hand at rock climbing at Myers Field House or listen to live music at the historic City Center.
