There is no shortage of fun in Minnesota, and looking at the latest MN Bike/Hike Guide, with all the maps to explore, we wanted to see how Alexandria fit as a one-tank, multi-modal, round-trip getaway. With increased gas prices taking a bite out of every motorist’s wallet, we found this Lakes Area fit the criteria. The perfect place to visit, parking the car at the selected lodging and then using a bicycle to get around. On this trip, we found the Cedar Rose Inn charming and a great place to relax. This allowed us to easily reach the local bike routes, trails, Alex’s historic downtown attractions, and several restaurants within easy walking distance.
