Bluff Country Attractions

While a visit to Avian Acres is surely a great reason to visit Southeastern Minnesota’s Bluff Country, there are many other very good excuses if you need them. Located in an area known for its hardwood forests and beautiful scenery, people also come for some of the most simple pleasures: locally-baked pies and other culinary delights, a potpourri of unique gift and antique shops, a variety of outdoor and family-fun activities including biking, birding, geocaching, fishing, tubing, canoeing and kayaking on the Root River, turkey and deer hunting, art galleries, Amish tours, historic sites, B&B’s, and just plain friendly people.

Likely the two best-known of the local attractions are the National Historic Bluff Country Scenic Byway and the Root River Trail. The Scenic Byway is a self-guided 88-mile driving tour through the heart of the Bluff Country. The Byway passes quiet farmland, rivers, and charming small-town America. It roughly parallels the well-used sixty-mile paved Root River Trail, which can be accessed at many of the villages and towns along the Byway.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet retreat or an action-packed trip, a day’s getaway or a longer vacation, you can fulfill your birding needs at Avian Acres and also visit other delightful destinations in Southeastern Minnesota.
