Visit Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range

Respite in a time of uncertainty

We understand that many people are wisely staying home at this time. Others will simply need to travel: for work, as part of aide services, or to leave crowded cities.  Rest assured, many of our lodging properties remain open for business, and are working to provide safe and clean accommodations. Many of our attractions are temporarily closed, but many restaurants and retailers are providing curbside pick-up and delivery services.

Once we’ve weathered this storm, travel might look a little different than it has in the past. We hope that when the time is right, consider heading north for affordable experiences on world-class trails with views you won’t find anywhere else.  The Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Area in Gilbert is open with a newly expanded area, and we have fresh new mountain bike trails waiting. When the time comes, visit our  museums, participate in Mesabi events, and peruse unique shops and our favorite brewery.   Request or download maps  – and get planning for better days!
