Lake Shore named best place to escape to in Minnesota

Minnesota may be home to the Mall of America, state-of-the-art sports complexes and beautiful museums, but one travel blog pinpoints Lake Shore as the best place to escape to in Minnesota.

The largest city in Cass County – boasting 1,050 residents – Lake Shore is nestled on the northern shore of Gull Lake, mostly along upper County State Aid Highway 77, or Interlachen Road. That’s part of the reason why travel writers for the Expedia Viewfinder blog chose Lake Shore for the honor in Minnesota.
