Two Beaches You Probably Didn’t Know About in Southern Minnesota
Have you heard of or been to either of these two little-known beaches in southern Minnesota? These aren't beaches that I would immediately think to go to when I think about beaches but they're probably beaches we should check out sometime!
These beaches were dubbed as being 'little-known' by Only in Your State and those two beaches are Flandrau State Park Beach in New Ulm and Afton State Park Beach in Hastings.
Flandrau State Park Beach
This beach is very unique because it's a sand-bottom swimming pool, technically, but because of the sand, it's the perfect beach to relax on. Unfortunately, according to the Minnesota DNR website, the sand-bottom beach is closed this year. So put this on your list of places to go next summer!
Afton State Park Beach
Afton State Park Beach IS open this summer, so this is a place you can go with the kids the next time it's hot out! It's on the St. Croix River which is a river I enjoy so maybe I'm biased but this sounds like the perfect beach.
