Typically, between fishing my wife likes to do the touristy things the north woods has to offer. I've been a little disappointed in the non fishing websites regarding Cass. What touristy things are close by? For example, we usually hit the local shops, candy stores, historical stuff, wildlife museums, miniature golf, etc. I know there is a forest winery nearby, but what else?

I normaly make a trip to Bemidji when visiting Cass. The Woolen Mills have some nice jackets and stuff like that. Not really sure what else to see, I always spend the majority of my time fishing. I know there's some sort of Ribfest type event going on the second to last weekend in July in Cass Lake. Otherwise, all I know about is all listed on the Cass Lake Chamber of Commerce site.

Great question. We have literally hundreds of miles of bike paths through the National Forests. Bemidji and Walker are about 20 miles away, in different directions, great towns, full of shops and things to do. Just past Walker on 371 is a real nice family recreation center, go carts, ect. Nearby Cass is a casino, also a big one in Walker. If the kids are young, you have to have their picture taken by Babe and the Blue Ox on the shores of Lake Bemidji, then put them on the tilt-a world and rides next to it.....it goes on and on. Itasca National Park is a must, the beginning of the Mississippi River...Sporting Clays and trap club, 10-13 miles away, Great golf courses-Longbow especially, the one in Cass Lake is average.....You will enjoy it.

Thanks a lot. Vacations always go much smoother when mama is happy. Sounds like we can visit Walker one day, and Bimidji another. Balance of time at resort. perfect. Thanks again Col.

There is also a petting zoo alongside Highway 2 on the way into Bemidji and I've been thinking of taking the kids to that.

While fishing is the main purpose of this forum, I know my kids REALLY enjoy the nice sandy beaches on Cass Lake.

Scott,

Talking about a petting zoo, these resorts need to get some massage people in there to give you a good back rub after a long day on the lake. That would cap off the day tremendously!!!

I would be in line for that. Also, as Gowdy and I were talking we have an excellent Sporting Clays and trap shooting club about 15 miles away towards Walker.

Like Col ron pointed out you can see the start of the Mississippi river. Basically you can wade accross it. Now that's something the kids can talk about

Does your wife like to drink? If she does, I could recommend a few bars in the nearby vicinity. That's touristy... ain't it? Laughing

Nope. But if that's how it was... then she sure sounds alright!! Smile

I'd be willing to bet there'd be a lot of folks that would come out of hibernation on this site to give you their favorite "up north" drinking establishment. I've certainly got a few.

1. Pikehole Bar and Grill ( Power Dam Rd. - n. side of Cass betwee Pug Hole and Kitchi)
2. Brigid's Cross (Bemidji)
3. Break on the Lake (West) Resort bar
4. Keg and Cork (Bemidji)
5. Bar 209 (Bemidji)

There's more, but that's a good start. If you run out of the typical touristy things, you've got yourself the start of a good pub crawl! Cheers! Cool

Hey MM, I knew there was something I liked about you. You are on a first name basis with all the top watering holes.

when they say "explore minnesota", isn't that what they mean?

I appreciate the input, but of course I'll have to do my own research.
