If you are looking for a relaxing secluded getaway, St. Cloud, MN is the place for you. I have taken several weekend vacations to St. Cloud for the relaxing atmosphere. It is a rather quaint town that offers a very soothing experience.
One of the prettiest places that is soothing to anyone's soul is the Munsinger and Clemens Gardens. These relaxing gardens have some of the most beautiful flowers that anyone could enjoy. A simple stroll through the gardens is enough to free you from the stress of everyday life. It is by far my favorite place in St. Cloud.
Another activity that one may find relaxing is the free historic tours that are available. These tours give interesting facts about this calm city.
While St. Cloud is perfect for the that relaxing weekend getaway, I would just send out a word to anyone looking for excitement that the nightlife and entertainment venues for St. Cloud are very low key. It isn't that they are non-existent, but simply that they not the wild nights that larger cities may offer. Nevertheless, St. Cloud is a quaint town and is recommended for anyone needing to relax.
