Located just outside of Rochester, the town of Byron, Minnesota provides the access to the big city, but with a small town feeling. Byron is a town of roughly 5,000 residents, many of whom commute into the big city. It isn’t solely a bedroom community, though, as we also have plenty of residents who work and play in town, whether in our agriculture or in one of the many small business found around town.
There’s a good reason why people stick around Byron, too. There’s plenty to do close by, including Oxbow Park, a campground a little to the north of town, and Zollman Zoo, which is right next to the park. The zoo is home to rescued native animals, many of which came to Zollman after being injured to the point where they wouldn’t be able to survive in the wild. From the graceful bald eagle to the playful river otters, you can see the animals nearly year-round.
If you’d rather get out and play, you can opt for one of the two golf courses that are in town. Somerby Golf Club and Community is a private club with an 18-hole course, on the north side of town. On the south side, Links of Byron provides an executive length, 9-hole public course that is great for a quick round. Whichever you choose, wrap it up by heading into The Bears Den Restaurant, the most popular hometown restaurant, where you can catch a Vikings, Twins, or Golden Gophers game along with a beer and a good meal.
