 Minnesotans don't let winter get in the way of having a good time. Certainly not when we have a wide range of whimsical B&Bsheated patiosslick coffeeshops and sculptural ice bars spread throughout the state. Other ways to stay warm on the food & drink front include our many styles of piping hot pizza, the craft breweries, distilleries and wineries that seem to be in every town and city, and such idylic stretches of pure comfort as southern MinnesotaDuluth and the rest of the North Shore, really.
