Be sure to check out the Annual DL Cruise Night by the Detroit Lakes Minnesota City Beach the second Wednesday of June - September.

Don’t zoom past the cars—the lake breeze is a pleasure unto itself. When your stomach roars louder than a muffler, it’s time to head to the many bars and grills serving up pizza, burgers and more.
