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┬ájust as gorgeous, if not more so, during the colder months.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
