Rochester, Minnesota Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Rochester, Minnesota, with a population pushing 100,000, is probably best known for healing properties. This is home to the Mayo Clinic, a renowned medical facility that has treated American presidents and various world leaders since it was founded at the end of the 19th century. Voted by Money magazine onto their "best places to live" list, Rochester, the third-largest city in the state, is, however, more about day-to-day living than touristy teasers.

That having been said, there are thousands who pass through the city yearly, both patients and business-minded folk (IBM has a large facility here), and there is enough to see and do around Rochester to keep busy for a day at least.

Admirers of architect Frank Lloyd Wright will be pleased to know that he designed three local residences, but for attention-getting landmarks the water tower shaped like an ear of corn is hard to beat. Of historic interest find the Olmsted County History Center, wander the Mayowood Mansion, the residence of clinic founders, the Mayo family, or explore the time encapsulated Heritage House for a look at a Rochester of long ago. It's also possible to take a guided tour around the Mayo Clinic to see the art and architecture gracing this facility. When you're ready for a relaxing break, head to Silver Lake Park or Quarry Hill Park.

Rochester has an international airport located only eight miles south of the city. Minneapolis is 83 miles north of Rochester.
