With some awesome day trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much harder to soak up all that Walker, 20 miles away, has to offer. Northern Lights Casino, Walker City Park and Tianna Country Club alone justify the drive. Don’t forget about Nisswa either! Just 25 miles away, Brainerd International Raceway, Nisswa Family Fun Center and Mount Ski Gull are must-sees here.
