The Faribault Area
Because Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes, it's not surprising to learn that 10 lakes can be found within 10 miles of Faribault. Water sports and other outdoor recreation opportunities abound here. The 600-acre River Bend Nature Center features trails for hiking and cross-country skiing. Bicyclists and snowmobilers head for the Sakatah-Singing Hills Trail for 39 miles of forested land reaching all the way to Mankato.
Several of Minnesota's most historic and beautiful schools are within blocks of each other in Faribault. In fact, more historic Faribault buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places than any other community of its size in Minnesota.
Faribault, with a population of over 20,000, is located only 40 miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The proximity to the Twin Cities allows easy access to live theater and opera performances, professional sports and unlimited fine dining.
