Area Info

Grand Rapids is a unique and prosperous town located in Northern Minnesota on "the edge of the wilderness." Woodlands teeming with wildlife and a thousand tranquil lakes provide the outdoor enthusiast or the weekend vacationer with a one-of-a-kind destination only three hours North of the Twin Cities.

Commercial and residential property values have soared with the arrival of major corporations; making Grand Rapids the hub of the Arrowhead Region. Grand Rapids provides quality local dining, several choice accommodations, and a variety of shopping ranging from large retail stores to local gift shops. Rich with logging and mining history the area also boasts the Forest Lake History Center, the Judy Garland Museum, and the Iron World Discovery Center. Renowned throughout the state for boating, fishing, hunting and it's hundreds of miles of snowmobile and cross-country trails, the area has become a popular tourist destination.

Still largely undiscovered by many, Grand Rapids prices remain lower than all of the well-known Minnesota lake areas, making it a perfect time to purchase your dream property. Nothing quite compares to the refreshing atmosphere and warm, friendly people of Northern Minnesota.
