International Falls is right on the Canadian border and is nicknamed the “Icebox of the Nation”. It has an average of 109.4 days per year with a high temperature below 32 degrees F (freezing).
The area was well known to explorers as early as the 17th century and home to many indigenous peoples. The town was named Koochiching, but was changed to International Falls in 1903. The name reflects the Rainy River’s role as a border between the US and Canada.
