St. Cloud began as three separate settlements on the Mississippi River. One of the town sites began with a former slave owner involved in the fur trade, bringing slave-owning Southerners to the area. A second settlement was established by a professional town-entrepreneur who attracted Protestants opposed to slavery. The third site was intended for a sawmill which drew Catholics from Germany. Inm spite of the differences, the three settlements eventually merged into one city in 1856. The name “St. Cloud” was chosen to reflect the area’s long-ago French heritage, being named after a suburb of Paris, France.

Attractions

Left: Paramount Theatre; Top: The Fabulous Armadillos; Bottom: Summerland

Whether you’re an outdoor adventure junkie or outdoorsy as in: I like drinking craft beer on patios; the attractions in the GREATER St. Cloud area will leave you wishing you had more time to explore them all. Begin your day with a hike at Quarry Park, including a picnic that you picked up from a local cafe. Keep the adventure going with a roadtrip to a zoo, or a brewery, or a cheese maker, or a winery, or a museum, or–well you get the picture. Maybe shopping and strolling is more your thing? Downtown St. Cloud is a bustling epicenter for unique food, fun specialty shops, great entertainment and historic views. Nature more your style? Munsinger and Clemens Gardens along the Mississippi River. Speaking of that mighty body of water, why not rent a kayak and explore the Beaver Islands for an afternoon. Or if you’d rather kayak currentless, Lake George is a great convenient option for getting on the water. After you’re finished paddling, check out what’s around the lake... if it’s Wednesday night during the summer, you can even catch an outdoor Summertime by George concert! Fun adventures, and memories await you in GREATER St. Cloud. Start exploring now!

GEORGE

Lake George is home to "Summertime by George", a concert and festival that runs for 12 weeks every summer and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of St. Cloud. It's also a popular winter destination when the lake is open for ice skating. You'll find numerous paved walkways, a seating area, a beautifully-designed granite fountain and a welcoming plaza. Other features include a splash pad, public restrooms, playground area and performance pavilion. The on-site Municipal Complex is a multi-use facility. The Lake’s Boathouse building offers the community the opportunity to rent paddle boats, stand up paddleboards and canoes. Concessions are also available within this complex.

THE

GARDENS

CLEMENS GARDENS

MUNSINGER GARDENS

Six gardens make up Clemens Gardens: Virginia Clemens Rose Garden, Rest Area Garden, Formal Garden, White Garden, Perennial Garden and the Treillage Garden. During the summer the six gardens draw 2,000 to 3,000 people a day from all over the world. So whether you’re a weekend gardener or professional horticulturist, visit soon and find the flavor of European gardens right here in Central Minnesota!

Situated below the Clemens Gardens and along the Mississippi River, these distinctive gardens lie under towering hemlock and pine trees. As a result, many of the garden beds are in the shade, making them astounding in their abundance of color and incredible variety of flowers. Included in the park are a large peacock cage, lovely wedding pavilion, wooden gazebo, and of course, the fabulous Mississippi River.

Gardens Gift Shop: See page 72.

MISSISSIPPI

RIVER

Greater St. Cloud is lucky enough to have the Mississippi River flow right through town. Get a clear view of this scenic attraction starting at the River's Edge Convention Center where you can access the St. Cloud River Walk. Up for a hike? The River Walk follows along the Mississippi to St. Cloud State University campus. If you're not out of breath yet, you can extend your adventure and pick up the Beaver Island Trail, which continues south along the waterfront. When it comes to adventures on the Mississippi, the possibilities are endless. Pack a cooler and the family and spend the day fishing. Rent a kayak or canoe and take

advantage of our river accesses which are located at Wilson Park, St. Cloud State University and River Bluffs Regional Park. Or, make an adventure of your own...just get out and enjoy the Mississippi! mississippiriverpartners.org exploreminnesota.com

A FUN FACT: The Mississippi River begins in Northern Minnesota near Itasca and meanders south to the Gulf of Mexico. It flows through 10 states along the way. That's a 2,320 mile trip!

LOCAL

GRANITE

When granite deposits were found along area rivers and in land nearby, the granite industry began to develop. Granite was everywhere and even today, as you drive through St. Cloud and Central Minnesota, you’ll find buildings, houses, churches, monuments and public artwork made of granite of all kinds. One of the largest granite companies in the world is in nearby Cold Spring, and the Minnesota Correctional Facility was built on the site of the first granite quarry in St. Cloud. At one time the area claimed 19 granite companies, and the granite industry provided thousands of jobs throughout the mid-1800s to present day.

ALISE POST! A St. Cloud native, Alise Post Willoughby began racing BMX locally at the age of six and today is the most decorated BMX National Champion in history. Her intense competitive spirit, talent and tenacity earned her a coveted Silver Medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. Way to go, Alise — you’re our “Home Town Hero”!

Kimball Minnesota native Mike Schultz is the definition of inspiration. Dedicated athlete, innovative business owner and a man of many talents, we are proud to say that Mike is from Central Minnesota. A 2008 snowmobile accident that occurred while competing in a snocross race left Schultz with a compound fracture to his knee. After multiple surgeries, his leg was amputated just above the knee. But that didn’t stop him. Schultz engineered his own prosthetic knee using a patented linkage system and a mountain bike shock which allowed him to get back in action. This device became the foundation for Schultz’s company BioDapt, Inc. Founded by Schultz in 2010, BioDapt, Inc. made the Moto Knee available to active amputees across the US and is currently used by over several hundred wounded soldiers, extreme athletes, and active lifestyle amputees. Schultz is one of those extreme athletes, with 8 X-Games Gold medals in adaptive Motocross and Snocross and most recently in 2018 he brought home a gold and

We’ve made it pretty clear – Greater St. Cloud is a wonderful place to visit. But just imagine how much fun living here would be! There’s never a dull moment, with more events, shopping, dining, and entertainment than you’ll be able to keep up with. Plus, the housing opportunities in the area cover the whole spectrum, from classic turn of the century homes to expansive new builds on large lots. All within a few hour’s drive of the Twin Cities and surrounded by even more fun in smaller communities, St. Cloud is positioned in the perfect place for you to call home.

A Safe Community

Childcare

You’ll find safe neighborhoods, easy access to recreation, excellent health care and abundant cultural and educational opportunities in the region. Rolling farmlands, sparkling lakes, peaceful woodlands and many nearby state parks make the area an ideal place in which to reside. And, don’t forget, a river runs through it. The mighty Mississippi River is a constant, scenic presence in the region.

St. Cloud residents place a prime emphasis on family. Combined with a strong work ethic in the community, area residents have placed a high value on quality childcare.

Central Minnesota Located one hour northwest of the Twin Cities, and one hour south of the northern lakes and forests of the state, St. Cloud is central to both tourism and commerce.

SENIOR

COMMUNITY

The experience of maturing is rapidly evolving, forcing us to rethink what it means to “grow old.” We are ignoring the stigma attached to “senior citizen” and making active decisions regarding the way we spend our retirement years. Many of us are going back to school, starting businesses, even training for triathlons. We are redefining our place in society by taking control of how we live, work and play. Here are some opportunities available for adults age 55+ in the St. Cloud community. WHITNEY SENIOR CENTER (WSC) Committed to helping expand minds through lifelong learning, because education begins at birth and continues long after retirement. Interested in learning more about our innovative and mind enriching programs? Join us at WSC for our orientation offered weekly on Mondays starting at 10:30 a.m. We will give you a glimpse of our facility, programs and services. Check out our website (ci.stcloud.mn.us and click on Departments) for more information on how WSC can serve you. ST. CLOUD AREA GREETERS A volunteer organization devoted to welcoming convention attendees and greeting at various tourism-related events.
