Mankato Marathon 10 Anniversary Digital for website 01

Mankato is a welcoming city that embraces active people like you. In addition to many wonderful events like the Mankato Marathon, we also have more than 50 miles of local, county and state paved trails nestled in a scenic river valley that is perfect for runners or cyclists.

We are just a short 75 minutes from Minneapolis. Our growing community offers all of the services you would expect from a metropolitan area with the hospitality and charm of a close knit community.

After a day on our trails you can relax at a concert, gallery or outdoor restaurants with friends. We have a thriving arts community with quality theater, music, dance and visual arts. If you love music, you won’t be disappointed. We attract headliner acts like Elton John to our Verizon Center and have a booming entertainment district in our City Center.

On-site restaurants; charming rooms for the B&B enthusiast; game rooms and swimming pools for kids; fitness and business facilities; or campsite/resort properties.
