Thousands of votes came in over the last couple of weeks, as we tried to find the best ski area in the state. Places a little closer to metro like Wild Mountain got huge support on Facebook. But the spot with the most votes lies just an hour from the Canadian border — Lutsen Mountains on Lake Superior’s North Shore.
Minnesota’s new statewide winter scavenger hunt is off to a quick start.

In Minnesota, we’re truly blessed when it comes to nearby staycations. Perhaps one of the most popular examples of this is the epic North Shore and nearby city of Lutsen.
It is one of the oldest resorts in Minnesota and later this month, Lutsen Resort will be celebrating its 125th anniversary.
My rules for any vacation are simple: Relax and indulge. This was no exception for my “staycation” trip to Lutsen earlier this month.
