What is Minnesota in the winter like?   

Well, in one word? Frigid. Let’s be real here: winter in Minnesota can be downright brutal. Typically temperatures in Minnesota during the winter are well below freezing, and the daily highs don’t even tend to reach 32 degrees most days. At night, temperatures can plunge below zero, ensuring a very, very chilly night for anyone caught without heat. Snowstorms and even blizzards are fairly common, and ice seems to coat just about everything. However, if you’re a lover of winter and the chill of it, you’ll probably love Minnesota’s winters!   

Is Minnesota a good place to visit in the winter?   

As long as you can properly prepare for the bitter cold, Minnesota is a great place to visit during the winter. One of the many perks to visiting in December or January is that very few other visitors do, which means less crowds for you and more peace and quiet in Minnesota’s photogenic wildlands.
