Live Wide Open is evident in spades in this river-bordering county 


Traverse County is where the boundaries of Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota meet so you can experience the unique geography of the Red River Valley, Continental Divide, and long-melted glacial Lake Agassiz.

The Red River Valley boasts some of the richest soil in the world, so naturally farming is the key industry in the county. The farm life is top notch in Traverse County, but don’t think that technology has passed the region by. Wheaton for example has broadband initiatives in progress for businesses, consumers, manufacturers and schools. For visitors, Browns Valley boasts history in a  picturesque valley with incredible fishing at hand.

Live Wide Open is evident in spades in this river-bordering county with a variety of hunting and fishing pursuits available. OK, there’s also golfing, hiking, canoeing, trails and nifty festivals.

Traverse County may be the least populated county in Minnesota (census 2010), but folks around say you need to think of quality, not quantity. After all, it’s hard to measure the value of real peaceful rural living.
