Here Are 12 Spots In Minnesota You Must Explore This Winter

The cold is slowly creeping its way across Minnesota, and Minnesota’s parks are getting emptier and emptier. Sure, once the good snow hits there will be some cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and the occasional ice-fisher or snowmobiler, but for the most part, the parks are still empty enough to provide you with uninterrupted, peaceful exploration. Sure it’s cold out, but that’s why we layer!

Don’t let winter turn you into a couch-dweller, and get out to enjoy the amazing Minnesota scenery. We talked about some gorgeous places this summer, and I’m here to remind you that these places are just as gorgeous, if not more so, during the colder months.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
