Best Time to Visit Minnesota in Summer Time?

by Teej
(Colorado Springs, CO)

Hi, when is the best time to visit Minnesota?

I know it's very COLD in the winter, I'm hoping it's also warm there and if so, what we could look forward to in the summer time specifically.

But, if another time is better due to festivals and the like, please also let us know!

Hope you can answer this. Thank you!

Best Time to Visit Minnesota
by: Teej

Wow, I want to thank you SO very MUCH for your answers and time!

It does sound beautiful there, and yes we would love to visit, and will check out the links you have to the airlines for cheaper travel, hopefully something will come up as a good deal for a flight out there.

How exciting and yes I thought it was very cold there, a nice surprise to hear it's not extreme for the cold weathers.

The festival sounds great, and we've never seen Dog sledding before. I think this would be a good time, to see the dog sledding. As long as the dogs enjoy it, we'd love to see that!

Thank you SO much again for your time in answering our question(s)!

Also wanted to add, sorry I didn't before, but you have a WONDERFUL website and we are very appreciative of how friendly it is, wonderful information, and photos. Please add more photos also! If you can with time. It looks like a lot of work on your website, and very easy to get around and understand all the wonderful topics.

Again, thank you for your time and providing such amazing information that I've not found on other websites.

A great day to you.

Good times to visit Minnesota

Hi Teej,

Thanks for asking about the best times to visit Minnesota. This is a question I'm very happy to answer.

Summer is considered by many to be "prime" vacation time in Minnesota because of our beautiful...and warm...weather. The temperature during summer in Minnesota is often in the 80s or even 90s. This makes lakeside resorts and water sports very popular.

Having said that, I must add that there is really no bad time to visit Minnesota. Our hotels fill rapidly for fall "leaf looking." Our apple orchards and pumpkin patches are just a few places where lots of fall festivals take place.

As well, we are very much a winter vacation destination. We rarely have the really cold temperatures people often associate with Minnesota.

Most resorts in Minnesota operate year round and just switch the summer activities to winter activity. In summer the boats go out for fishing on the lakes; in winter we drill holes in the ice and go ice fishing! We have lots of ski resorts and hundreds of miles of trails dedicated to cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and even dog-sledding.

The second biggest dog sled race in the nation...the John Beargrease...takes place in northern Minnesota. As well, one of the largest winter festivals in the world, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival takes place in Minnesota.

We really do play and celebrate all year long.

I hope you'll come!
