This Minnesota Christmas Town Is Straight Out Of A Norman Rockwell Painting

Trent Jonas came to Minnesota to attend college - and never left. He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
Blessed with a picturesque location, tucked in among the bluffs of the Mississippi River valley, Red Wing is just about the perfect Minnesota Christmas town. With plenty of holiday tradition and a historic, red-brick downtown district that gets dressed up for the holidays, the town would have made a perfect setting for one of Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers.
Have you visited Red Wing during the holidays or attended the Holiday Stroll? Do you have another favorite Christmas town? You could make your own tour of Minnesota Christmas towns with a visit to Stillwater, which is only about an hour from Red Wing. The drive, along the Mississippi and up the St. Croix River valley, is also quite scenic.
