The Brainerd Lakes Area's Whitefish Chain Region offers the classic Minnesota vacation experience — sandy beaches, clear waters, and breath-taking views. And, winter even offers great family fun. But, vacation can be educational, too. Or adventurous. Crosslake, Pequot Lakes/Jenkins and Pine River house a treasure of entertainment options for vacationing families.

Don't forget to snap some shots of the kids with all the Paul Bunyan statues around the area!
