THINGS TO DO
You don’t have to be just an outdoors enthusiast to have fun in Warroad. There is plenty to do inside as well. Enjoy shopping in our quaint downtown where you’ll find fashion, unique arts and crafts, and plenty of supplies to do your own crafting such as for quilting and scrapbooking. Schedule a spa day and immerse yourself in relaxation. If you’ve got the kids along, take a break by having a treat at Soulutions and playing a round of glow-in-the-dark mini-golf. Take in an evening of family entertainment with a production of the Warroad Summer Theatre.
For your next stop, visit the Library and Heritage Center for a historical look at our area. View our rich Native, fishing, fur and lumber history. Kids will love the birch bark wigwam and the attached public library with its own children’s section, summer activities program and life jackets available for checkout. See a polar bear and an impressive display of mounted wildlife at Streiff’s Sporting Goods right in Warroad!
Visit the new Wm. S. Marvin Training and Visitor Center to learn the history of Marvin Windows and Doors and experience “hands on” the window manufacturing process.
