Four Seasons of the Year in Minnesota

All four seasons of the year are great times to visit Minnesota in. The changing seasons offer a variety of Minnesota vacation fun found in few other places.

Four Seasons of the Year

Life is never dull when even the trees change their garb from season to season.

"To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring." ~George Santayana

We know, from a lifetime of traveling across Minnesota, that all four seasons of the year, and every time of the season, are great times for Minnesota vacations.

Spring in Minnesota

Four Seasons of the Year

Long before spring season arrives "officially" on the calendar, we rejoice in signs that it is on the way. Pussy willows appear in the woods; the first wild flowers pop up. When the ice begins to recede from Minnesota's lakes and rivers, and the last of the snow melts into puddles, we recover from our cabin fever and catch spring fever.

Spring is the season when it is said that "there is romance in the air." What better time of year to plan a romantic getaway in Minnesota. Some of the best destinations for romance are our Minnesota bed & breakfast inns.

Minnesota Summer Vacations

Four Seasons of the Year

Spring is often so warm and pleasant in Minnesota that it seems to flow right into summer. This season arrives softly and the long summer days are made even longer by the switch to daylight savings time.

Family summer vacations are often when we load up the kids and the boats and head to our favorite Minnesota camping spots. If camping is not your preference, you can still get out into the same beautiful lake areas with a stay at one of our Minnesota resorts and lodges

Minnesota's Autumn Paradise

Four Seasons of the Year

Fall festivals and celebrations get us our into the autumn beauty. When the fall leaves turn golden and red, residents and visitors to our state get out to view the Minnesota autumn scenery We watch the fall color reports and trek to the Lake Superior North Shore for the first look at blazing beauty. The color moves gradually south through the state until the Twin Cities are lit with the color and carpeted with colorful falling leaves. By mid-October the only fall season color is along the rivers and in the blufflands of southern Minnesota.

Most of us take one last drive to see the color and to visit apple orchards and pumpkin patches in our autumn paradise.

Minnesota Winter Fun

Four Seasons of the Year

The onset of winter in Minnesota does not chase us into the house. We love our blazing fireplaces, hot chocolate, and good books but those are not our only winter pleasures. When the temperature plunges and the snow falls we get out and play.

Winter activities can be enjoyed by anyone of any age. If you ski or snowboard we have lots of ski resorts and cross-country ski trails. If you would rather ride through the snow, get out on a snowmoblie or, if you prefer a quieter ride, take a dog sled tour. For many of us, a walk on a day when there is softly falling snow is one of our favorite winter activities. Once our lakes freeze solidly, we drill holes in them and enjoy Minnesota ice fishing.

Our winter carnivals and winter festivals are world famous.

When we feel a need to get in out of the cold for a while, we often head to one of our indoor Minnesota water parks to indulge in a "tropical winter experience."

Minnesota winter, for many of us, is our favorite time of year...and the perfect time to plan a romantic winter getaway.

We love to joke about the weather in all four seasons of the year in Minnesota.

One of the jokes is that:

Spring begins around Memorial Day.
Summer is the first couple weeks in July.
Fall is Labor Day weekend.
Winter is all the rest.

Don't believe it however...there are few places in the world where you can enjoy the changing seasons the way you can in if you enjoy all four seasons of the year in Minnesota.
