Five sure-fire day trips in Minnesota that the kids will remember.
Once we get past ringing in the New Year, we have a few days’ grace period before 2014 really kicks in. Kids may still be home from school, people may still be taking vacation, but once the holiday decorations are put away and the Christmas thank-you notes are dispatched, what’s left to do? Plenty. Around the state, there are several opportunities to keep the festivities going.
Minnesota is pretty festival-friendly all year long, but December is more jam-packed than any other month. Here are just a few of the events taking place around the state (outside of the metro area) by the end of 2012.
The state shutdown has ended, and regardless of what you think of the outcome, at least all the fun places that were closed are now open again, including state parks and the Minnesota Historical Society properties, including this fun stop near Grand Rapids.
