Fox Sports North and Fox Sports Wisconsin launched a new original television series in June called The Minnesota Traveler featuring different Minnesota communities throughout the state and showcasing their unique travel destinations and tourist attractions. The new show is hosted by a former small town girl from a hobby farm near Avon, Minnesota, Jennifer Mergen, whose moxie — and keen storytelling sensibilities — make every program a must-see adventure worth watching.
Several tourism businesses in Stillwater will soon be featured with an episode segment that highlights the Birthplace of Minnesota. Discover Stillwater, the Stillwater/Oak Park Heights Convention & Visitor Bureau, worked with the producers, McCally-Lee Entertainment, to capture the inspiring beauty and fun of both the fall colors and winter holiday wonderland along Main Street Stillwater.
