Fun for All Four Seasons

Minnesota offers an endless array of things to do on vacation. Outdoor pursuits include fishing and boating, great golf, and some of the country’s best bike trails. There are excellent museums of all types, and options for live theater abound. Numerous wineries, breweries and distilleries are open for tours and tastings. And shopping is always nearby, including Mall of America, the state’s most-visited attraction.

Adventures by Day, Wonders by Night

Watch breathtaking northern lights displays on the shore of Lake Superior. Catch your dinner in the walleye capital of the world. Hike trails dotted with glistening lakes and lush forests, or cross the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi. In Minnesota, many paths lead to wonder-filled days and nights.
