Envision a place that combines small town values with close proximity to Rochester and the Twin Cities and you have the hidden gem that is Oronoco. Located along the Middle Fork of the stunning Zumbro River, the city seamlessly blends its historic downtown district with sprawling acreages of newer developments. Residents rally around annual events such as National Night Out, the 4th of July, and Oronoco Gold Rush Days (one of the largest antique shows in the Upper Midwest). Ellis Park is an excellent destination for a canoe trip and Riverwood Hills Park is a serene location for reflection. Tilly’s is a fantastic spot for lunch if you are in the mood for a fish fry that other restaurants cannot beat.
