Fargo Media: Detroit Lakes Minnesota Real Estate

Detroit Lakes, the county seat for Becker County, encompasses over 400 lakes within 25 miles. Interestingly, Detroit Lakes is near the geographical center of North America, and it occupies the highest point of land between Winnepeg, Canada and the Gulf of Mexico. For its residents and visitors, Detroit Lakes offers the amenities of a full-fledged city, but the special treatment typical of a small rural town.

Detroit Lakes Minnesota History

"Strait" in French is "Detroit" and Detroit Lakes gets its name from a French Catholic Priest who proclaimed it to be a beautiful "strait" when he first arrived. Later, in 1926, a public vote changed the name to include a reference to the many neighboring bodies of water.

There is so much to see and do in Detroit Lakes including fishing, boating, scuba diving, skiing (snow and water), sailing, river tubing, horseback riding, golfing and tennis. You can even visit an authentic log cabin, a wetland sanctuary and a mile-long white sugar sand beach. It's no wonder Detroit Lakes real estate is so popular!

See you on the Beach.
