Projects on the Horizon

Tourism

Northeastern Minnesota has long been one of the Midwest's favorite vacation and getaway destinations. Considering the region is home to millions of acres of densely forested land, thousands of lakes and rivers, top family attractions and endless recreation, it's easy to see why. Tourism impacts the regional economy to the tune of millions spent annually in lodging, dining and related gross dollars. The Laurentian Vision enhances the area's appeal as a year-round playground with the addition of manmade lakes and waterways designed and optimized for leisure and commercial use. Preplanned commercial and residential lakeside tracts open doors for a variety of  permanent and seasonally based economic development projects. Upscale resorts and year-round lake homes, golf courses, marinas and entertainment venues are just a few of the plausible, tourism-related possibilities considered for the future.
