Minnesota River Valley Bus Tour

If you’re interested in exploring as many of the Dakota War-related sites near the Minnesota River in one day, then this tour is for you.

On this day-long tour, you will see where six of the eight major events along the Minnesota River took place: Agency attack, Redwood Ferry attack, two Fort Ridgely battles, two New Ulm attacks, Milford attack & Birch Coulee Battle. (Not seen: Wood Lake attack, Camp Release).

Also included will be discussions on additional sites that we can’t access or won’t have enough time: Little Rock Trading Post, Redwood Ferry Ambush and Marker, Birch Coulee Monuments, Reservation Line Marker, and Ravine Ambush Marker.

An hour’s time for lunch is included. We will stop at Pizza Ranch. Lunch is included in the ticket cost.
