Redwood Falls Things to Do

  • Redwood County Courthouse

    A rather humdrum courthouse, but still it is built in the old style and has not been replaced by the new-fangled monstrosities that are prevelant in the more populated counties.

  • The Falls

    There is a nice little footbridge that crosses the Redwood above the falls. However, due to the drought, there was no falls to be seen on the day that I visited.

  • Town Ball

    Almost every small town in rural Minnesota has a baseball field with bleachers. Amateur baseball thrives in Minnesota and it is wholesome and cheap entertainment for those hot summer's nights.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is not a huge selection of restaruants to choose from in Redwood, the better one would be A&A's
    which is along the main strip of the town.
    The town is the home of the largerest municiapla part in the state. You can camp down in the park, close to the river. If you hike along the park you will come across a zoo, an old draw bridge, beautiful waterfalls and a geourgeous surrounding of nature.

    Favorite Dish: This is bascially a burger and fry place, but they do have interesting burgers, and of course you have to down it with a rootbear float.
