Winter Highlights Along the St. Croix River
St. Croix Scenic Byway
The 123-mile St. Croix Scenic Byway follows the Minnesota side of the river. North of Stillwater, open fields and pine forests cradle tiny towns of buttoned-up houses. Relax and enjoy the scenery along the river and at towns such as Marine on St. Croix, where the Christ Lutheran Church (pictured at left) looks as if it inspired a postcard (byways.org).
