With a long history of welcoming visitors from across the globe, we extend to you our warmest greetings!
Regardless of what brought you here, be it our legendary medical facilities or world-class shopping, dining and culture, we’re glad you’re here.
Rochester is a growing community that is consistently rated as one of the most livable cities in the U.S. There are skyways, walking subways, and easy outdoor access to almost everything you’ll need downtown–all within a short walk.
Rochester is also known for a rich array of unique locally owned businesses and thriving cultural and arts venues. Depending on the season, you can explore more than 85 miles of paved trails, visit one of more than 100 park areas, or try out activities like snowshoeing, cross country skiing or ice-skating. During the warmer months, visit one of our many great golf courses, or experience the popular Thursdays on First & 3rd Art Market & Music Festival. There is always something to do, regardless of the season.
If there is anything I can to do help you feel more at home here in our wonderful community, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or drop by City Hall. Enjoy our first-class city and first-class service!
Mayor Kim Norton, City of Rochester

THE SOLDIERS FIELD VETERANS MEMORIAL
Many people and contractors in the construction trade, plus many others, donated their time, talent and materials to make this Memorial one of the finest in the country. It was built without the use of tax dollars, and all committee members are unpaid volunteers. An interest bearing perpetual fund of $500,000 was established to maintain the Memorial.
Located five blocks south of the Mayo Clinic, at 300 7th St. S.W., it consists of four circular granite walls, a 12’ x 51’ main wall, 50 trees, 4,920 pavers, 36 granite benches, the U.S. flag, the Minnesota flag, six Armed Forces flags and the POW/MIA flag.
The outside walls feature battle graphics from the Civil War to the Gulf War, and the inside walls are engraved with stories of important military events from the Revolutionary
War to the Gulf War. Educational markers that show the history and proper etiquette of the American flag stand inside of the memorial. Statues of a mother and child, and a nurse and a medic treating a wounded soldier stand near the Wall of Remembrance. The logos of the Military Academies are engraved on the rear of the Wall as well. There is a small complex featuring a statue of a WW-II soldier at the corner of 6th St. and 2nd Ave S.W., the entrance to the Memorial.
Cannons from the Gulf War and World War I are on display. Primary funding came from the sale of pavers, purchased by or for veterans, that form the walkway surrounding the Memorial. The 8”x20” feature that contain the name of a veteran, when they served, and the branch they served in.
A focal point of the Memorial is a granite wall 12’ high by fifty one feet long that contains the names of over 2,300 people, from S.E. Minnesota, who died as a result of injuries sustained in service to our country from the Civil War to the present.

AN IMPRESSIVE $4-$5 MILLION MEMORIAL THAT WAS BUILT TO HONOR THOSE WHO GAVE ALL AND DEDICATED TO ALL WHO SERVED

The RAD Zoo is one of the largest displays of reptiles and amphibians in the world, with more than 150 different kinds of snakes, turtles, lizards, crocodilians, and amphibians all on display. Zoo co-owner and director Jamie Adam Pastika has run the business with his wife, Melissa Gail Pastika, and their staff for eight years. "We cater o families looking for a fun, educational experience for their kids. We make a point that everyone who visits our zoo has an opportunity to pet at least one animal, typically an alligator or a large boa or python," said Jamie. Daily shows give guests a chance to learn more about the animals, and pet a few of them at shows end. During weekend feeding times, guests can watch many of the snakes and crocodiles dining. The Pastikas are constantly working on new exhibits. This summer they hope to have sailfin dragons as well as a tank of South American river turtles. Pastika said that there are many satisfying aspects of being a zookeeper, like taking care of the animals by trying to build them homes similar to what they would experience in the wild. He enjoys watching excited kids interact directly with the animals. "Our goal at the Zoo is to try to instill a greater appreciation for wildlife and wild places among our children so that they will grow up to help preserve them." 3297 COUNTRY RD. 45N, OWATONNA THERADZOO.COM 125 LIVe, ROCHESTER 125 Elton Hills Dr. NW 507-287-1404, 125livemn.org Spend your day with us!
