WELCOME to the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau!
Set along the rugged and colorful scenery of the Mississippi, St. Croix and Vermillion Rivers, Hastings is a scenic river town steeped in tradition. With a rich heritage of progress, Hastings has grown and changed to meet the needs of its population without forgetting its past. Reminders of the city’s history abound, the mighty rushing rivers, the tall stately trees and the buildings that whisper of days gone by. But Hastings isn’t a place to just drive through; it is a place to explore, take in the sights, venture back in time and enjoy.
By choosing to be a Chamber Member, you are not only investing in your business but also in the community.
