Hastings City is located in Minnesota, near the spot where St. Croix and the Mississippi Rivers converge. As of latest count, the city’s population is at a little over 22,000. A big portion of the land mass of Hastings can be found in Dakota County while the rest extends into Washington County. Hastings City was named after Henry Hastings Sibley, the very first governor of Minnesota.
Early on, Hastings developed fast because of its unique location with an accessible riverboat port and it is very near the Vermillion River which is a hydropower resource. Other areas near the river are either too mountainous or marshy. Three main roads provide access to Hastings: Minnesota State Highways 316 and 55, and US Route 61.

The northern boundaries of Hastings are mostly portions of the Mississippi River while the Vermillion River is on the southern portion of the town. The city has some of the most exciting natural attractions in the country and this includes a gorge that surrounds the Vermillion Lake just below a falls, bluffs along the northern shores of the Mississippi River, two lakes named Lake Isabel and Lake Rebecca which both drain onto the Mississippi River, and lots of marshlands.
