Outdoor Adventures

The park (both MN and WI sides) are beautiful with some unique geological formations. Check out the Wisconsin-side website for trails and hikes, but also activities that are fun for families (everyone, though, really)—like wildflower and bird checklists. Look at the Minnesota-side website for canoe/kayak rental information, boat tours, etc. that start in Taylors Falls.

The falls are really fun to visit if stairs are not a problem, and they are right in downtown Osceola! There's a fun little area for a picnic, and the water is shallow enough to wade in. You can also hike a short path (less than .5 mi) to the St. Croix River for a beautiful view—a great place for a picnic!

Food scene

By far the favorite, Watershed Cafe is the a restaurant you don't want to miss on your trip to Osceola. With Farm-fresh and locally sourced ingredients, some of the menu is seasonal and it's all hard to beat. The risotto and steak are amazing, but even their PB&J is spectacular. They also serve Duluth Co. Coffee, so stop in between meals for a quality latte.

Tippy's is a great place to spend an hour or two catching a game and working your way through a burger and beverage. Their patio is great, too, when the weather's nice! And don't miss the Wisconsin Cheese curds!

This is our favorite coffee in the area (although we also enjoy the Duluth coffee at Watershed!). It's not a walkable distance from Cascade House, but sometimes good coffee is worth a short drive.
