What travelers to Mankato are saying

Mankato is a great little city - it has pretty much what most look for - shopping, great dining choices and outdoor activities... plus it's located near a major university.

Business trip. Spent some time at the mall- kind of small for the size of the town... Would highly recommend the Pizza Ranch! They were awesome! Lots of college students.

Great town. Lots to do, whether you are looking for shopping and family friendly restaurants, or looking to take in a moondogs game. Good times
