Shop, Golf or Hike in Albertville
Drive 45 miles into downtown Bloomington to shop the Mall of America, or travel about a half-mile to Albertville Premium Outlets to look for deals. Whatever you decide, the Country Inn & Suites makes for a great launching pad for exploring Albertville and all its fun things to do. Outdoorsy guests can work their way around the fairways at Cedar Creek Golf Course, hike the trails at Lake Maria State Park or pick apples at Deer Lake Orchard when the season is right. Feeling adventurous? Climb into a go-kart and navigate the hairpin turns on the track at ProKART Indoor Racing. If you’re a Vikings or Twins fan, take the quick drive into Minneapolis to catch a professional sports game.
