Have Winter Your Way

Find frosty fun at popular winter festivals and marvel at exquisite snow and ice sculptures. Follow trails lit with candles on a winter evening, skate the world’s longest ice path or hit the ski slopes. You can enjoy a postcard view from the window of a cozy lodge on a romantic getaway, take the kids to an indoor water park or meet friends for dinner at a restaurant with a fireplace after taking in a hockey game or one of the many plays, musicals or other performances scheduled this winter.

Wild Adventures by Day, Natural 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 surrounded by glistening lakes, rolling prairies and lush forests, or cross the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi. In Minnesota, many paths lead to life-long memories.
