Embrace or Escape

Take advantage of al fresco seasonal fun—think ice-skating and winter festivals—or head inside for a dose of culture, a decadent meal or a cozy craft cocktail. Wander your way this winter and make the most of the season in your city of choice.

Embrace the Season

  • Get into the spirit of the season by partaking in one of the Twin Cities’ many winter festivals, like the St. Paul Winter Carnival, from January 24–February 3.
  • Break a sweat on the trails and slopes around the Twin Cities with a spot of cross-country or downhill skiing.
  • Head to Loring Park for WinterSkate. There's no fee to hit the rink and complimentary skate rentals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
