Paul Bunyan Land and Nisswa Family Fun Center are lively and exciting attractions, offering quality entertainment for kids of all ages.

Take photos, enjoy the interpretive displays and find out about the animals and plants at the Pine Grove Zoo. Be sure to ask at the entrance about hands-on activities and where to find the zoo's favorite inhabitants.

Buckle up for some high-octane action at the North Central Speedway, the area's go-to racetrack for motorsports fans.

Pack a few snacks and take five in the peaceful, green surroundings of Charles A. Lindbergh State Park and Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area. There's also plenty of space to lie around on the grass at Croft Mine Historical Park and Buffalo Hills Park.

Love birds? Pull out your binoculars and see which different species are hanging out at Bay Lake and Gull Lake. Couldn't see a thing? Head on over to Lake Ossawinnamakee and the Cuyana Mine Pits and try again.

You're sure to find lots of interesting artifacts and stories behind the doors of the diverse cultural institutions here. Among the best places to visit are the Minnesota Military Museum, the Minnesota Fishing Museum and Depot Museum.

One of the most photographed historic sites here is the This Old Farm. This atmospheric place offers visitors the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the region's past.

Grab some gifts or browse the local fashion pieces at MN Surf Co.

Want to practice your drive? Grab your clubs and hit the greens at The Vintage at Staples and the Deacon's Lodge Golf Course. If you can't keep out of the rough there, perhaps you should try the Cragun's Legacy Courses or the Classic at Madden's Golf Course.

If you're here when it dumps buckets of snow, there's no reason not to visit Mount Ski Gull. Even if you don't have an interest in skiing or snowboarding, there's plenty of other things to keep the family entertained.

If you're on the hunt for something more to do in Brainerd, head over to Crosslake Community Center.
