Golf & Recreation
Recreation opportunities abound in Saint Paul whether you prefer snowshoes, a bicycle or a 7-iron in your hands.
The city’s scenic hiking and biking trails, beautiful parks, championship golf courses and pristine waterfronts set Saint Paul apart as a magnificent, four-season recreation destination. The Twin Cities are highly regarded for its healthly bicycle culture. Many of our roads have bicycle lanes, earning Saint Paul its reputation as one of the most “bicycle friendly” cities in America. In 2015, Saint Paul and Minneapolis were named the best parks system in the United States by the Trust for Public Land.
Hit the links at Como, Highland 9-Hole, Highland National or Phalen Park Golf Course. Highland National even features a Snoopy-shaped bunker in honor of Peanuts' creator Charles Schulz, who learned to play golf there.
Regardless of outdoor temperatures, local foot traffic is always on the move, and there's always an excuse to be on the water in the land of 10,000 lakes. During the warmer months, outdoor enthusiasts enjoy golf, boating, fishing and kayaking. For the ruggedly adventurous, famous Minnesota winters are prime for exhilarating activities such cross-country skiing, ice fishing and sledding. Hikes are a popular activity at any point of the year, but it's arguably best to be near the Mississippi when glorious fall colors overwhelm the river banks. From apple picking to rowing and more, Saint Paul offers the outdoor space for your next favorite adventure.
