Alexandria is a thriving center of business and tourism located in west-central Minnesota off I-94, nearly halfway between Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota and Fargo, North Dakota. This active city of 13,000 residents seems much larger to the observant visitor, with good reason. The summer residents, tourists and residents of outlying areas support a lively combination of retail business, dining, entertainment and recreational activities. With an abundance of lakes, resorts and festivities, there are activities for every season.

The museum housing the captivating Kensington Runestone, believed by some to have been left by visiting Vikings in 1362, and the gigantic Big Ole Viking statue built for the 1965 World’s Fair form prominent attractions at the end of Broadway. This welcoming main street has been beautifully renovated and is decorated to the hilt for the Christmas season. Popular events and attractions include the Douglas County Fair, Art in the Park, stock car racing, golf, theatre, music, hiking and biking.

The town has grown substantially and commerce flourishes in each direction. In addition to its tourism, manufacturing, health care and food processing are major businesses in Alexandria.
