Arts & Culture

With it’s majestic outdoor scenery, it should come as no surprise that many of the cultural experiences in Chisago Lakes intermingle with nature. Art enthusiasts can enjoy open-air exhibits in the Franconia Sculpture Park, follow the Swedish Barn Quilt Trail, or travel along the back roads of the St. Croix Pottery Tour.
