Welcome to Brainerd, MN

Winter recreation, boating, auto racing, bike trails, golf courses — Brainerd’s got something for everyone.

The people at ‘Visit Brainerd’ want you to know there’s a lot to do in their town: snowmobiling and skiing in the winter, boating on the lakes in the summer, a 100+ mile bike trail to Bemidji, access to the new Cuyuna mountain bike trail system, golf and the largest auto racing facility in the Midwest, among other things.
