Stillwater—The Birthplace of Minnesota

Stillwater Marina is just steps from downtown Stillwater, Minnesota, one of the prettiest little towns in the country. Long considered the birthplace of Minnesota, this historic river town offers visitors a combination of natural beauty, fun activities, fantastic restaurants, extraordinary accommodations, events and festivals year-round.

Naturally Beautiful

Nestled in the St. Croix River valley, the historic town of Stillwater boasts unsurpassed natural beauty every season of the year. Surrounded by steep bluffs and verdant trees, the natural beauty of Stillwater is unsurpassed whether you’re traversing the many biking or hiking trails, boating along the river, or enjoy the charm of downtown.

Get Away to Stillwater

There’s so much to do in Stillwater, it’s hard to choose just one activity. From boating down the St. Croix River to shopping at any of the dozens of boutiques and shops along main street; from strolling any one of the year-round festivals or art fairs to relaxing at one of the many restaurants, cafes, or bistro patios that dot the downtown, Stillwater offers a feast of fun around every corner.

Stillwater Takes You Back in Time

Since 1848, when the first territorial convention was held in what began the process of establishing Minnesota as a state, Stillwater has played a pivotal role in Minnesota’s history. As a river town, it was only natural that the lumber industry would help establish Stillwater as one of the most important cities in the country. From there, wealth, steamships, gaslights, and other innovations put Stillwater, Minnesota, on the map.
