Be sure to visit Minnesota in winter. By late October the state is often covered with a blanket of snow and is one of the top winter vacation destinations in the world.
We don't hide from winter! We get out and play in the snow. We love our Minnesota winter sports.
While we don't have mountains, we do have wonderful ski resorts. Trails across the state, including in our state parks, are groomed for cross-country skiing. You can find places to take a dog sled tour, to skijour with your dog, and go on a sleigh ride. Attend winter festivals in many towns and cities all across the state.
If you enjoy fishing, you will love "hard water fishing" or as it is better known, ice fishing.
