Golfers and Civil War buffs (also known as dads) will revel in all that Fort Ridgely State Park has to offer. This park preserves the site of the Battle of Fort Ridgely, an important U.S. victory in the 1862 war with the Dakota Indians. Roam the rustic stone structures, wooden bridges, and ruins, and visit the impressive Fort Defenders Monument, which lists the names of all who lost their lives in the battle. You can also take in the green at the only Minnesota state park with a nine-hole golf course (you’ll get two free passes if you stay three or more consecutive nights).

Even if that’s not your scene, Fort Ridgely has a loaded arsenal of fun for the whole fam—enjoy the beautiful valley overlook or explore the hiking trails on horseback, swim in nearby Swan Lake, or ski if the season’s right. The park has a gorgeous chalet for winter visitors, and a renovated farmhouse, both excellent for rounding out your historical throwback experience.
