11 Small Towns In Minnesota That Offer Nothing But Peace And Quiet

Lived in Northfield! This beautiful town was quaint and full of activities. Many neat shops. I worked at the Laura Baker School--took many hikes in the Carlton arboretum, and frequented the little shops.

Northfield, MN (Jesse James Days event)

The most famous event? Defeat of Jesse James Days, featuring a reenactment of the famous bank raid gone wrong by the James-Younger Gang at the first National Bank of Northfield.

And at the center of town is a lovely town square complete with a working fountain. The square is a perfect spot to spend a few hours people watching on a warm summer day.
