Rice County MN
The 13th-largest county in Minnesota, Rice County sits just a bit south of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. It is home to over 64,000 residents, numerous small industries, and educational centers. It is located conveniently within an hour’s drive to Minneapolis, but many of the towns and cities like Lonsdale, Northfield, and the county seat of Faribault still have that small-town vibe.
Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and Rice County certainly contributes to that name. Over 20 notable lakes like Cannon Lake and French Lake are found in the county, along with plenty of smaller, unnamed lakes. This means there are plenty of opportunities for fishing and boating, and the adjoining game lands means some quality hunting as well. You’ll definitely want an off-road friendly vehicle for these pursuits. Not everyone likes the outdoor life, but don’t worry, there’s still plenty to do – Rice County is home to tons of arts opportunities, along with plenty of historic sites for history buffs.
