The 'Legendary' Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA is as much of an intimate performance venue as it is a National Landmark and road trip destination to be experienced. For all practical purposes, 'The Surf' is a music museum.

Only a stones-throw from Rochester and south east Minnesota, the Surf Ballroom's walls and corridors are adorned with many hundreds of pieces of memorabilia, including autographed pictures, guitars, commemorative plaques, and even stage wear.
