WCCO Viewers’ Choice
No matter how old you are, a cupcake is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. In our search for the best in the state, more of you voted for this week’s pick than any other “Best of Minnesota” winner. You sent me to the northwest metro to try Nadia Cakes in Maple Grove.
Who makes the best fried chicken in Minnesota? Your votes sent Matt Brickman to a tiny town near New Ulm to try the chicken at Carl’s Corner.
It’s been a little warmer this past week, but there’s still lots of snow left. And I wanted to make the most of it, so I sent him in search of the best cross-country ski trails in Minnesota.
We’re not quite done with winter just yet, and that means there’s still time to enjoy your favorite winter activities — like snowmobiling. I asked WCCO-TV viewers where the Best Snowmobiling in Minnesota can be found, and they answered. It’s in Crow Wing County.
Valentine’s Day is almost here and if you’re still trying to figure out what to do, we’ve got you covered. I went in search of Minnesota’s Best Romantic Restaurant, and your votes sent me west of the cities to Alexandria for Bella’s on Broadway.
With school closures due to the extreme cold again this week, some parents may have been wondering what to do with their kids to stave off cabin fever. Since it’s too cold for outdoor activities like sledding or making snowmen, I went in search of the Best Cold Day Getaway in Minnesota.
Christmas is less than two weeks away now, so I figured it was high-time to do some shopping. And while Santa may do some of the heavy lifting, there are probably a few toys left on your list. So you guys sent me in search of Minnesota’s Best Toy Store.
With snowflakes falling Thursday, we are entering the peak of soup season. And in Minnesota, that means wild rice soup. It’s as much a part of the diet here as hot dish. But who makes the best? Your votes sent me to Monticello to try a bowl at the Cornerstone Cafe.
