Escape to Estherville. Get in touch with nature, take a hike in beautiful Fort Defiance State Park, kayak or canoe down the West Fork of the Des Moines River and fish or hunt in our many public areas. Check out our history at the fascinating and large Emmet County Historical Museum or learn about our fallen meteorite and even see a piece of it! Relax with a book at our updated and charming Carnegie Library. Eat at our many delicious and one-of-a-kind restaurants. Have a unique shopping experience at our small boutiques and find exclusive items you won’t find anywhere else! Love life in the Ville.
